Frontenac provides more than just capital. Their group has taken the time to become extremely knowledgeable about our industry and they also have experience and many contacts in adjacent industries. This has allowed the Frontenac team to become quickly respected and valuable partners to our management team.

Aziz Virani
Chairman, RCG Global Services

The Frontenac team has been a reliable partner in the pursuit of investment opportunities and equity value appreciation. From the sourcing of deals, through diligence, to completed acquisitions and ownership, Frontenac has brought creativity and disciplined analysis to the entire process.  Post-acquisition, Frontenac is collaborative with management and assists in strategic direction setting and execution to maximize value creation.

Frontenac supports its companies in a wide range of ways: crafting strategy, providing a capital commitment, and engaging operationally to solve problems. Their ability to process information and respond quickly, while remaining process oriented, stands out among private equity firms.

Frontenac brings an analytical approach to decision making that helps drive improved overall performance at its portfolio companies.   Team Frontenac is a clear and transparent partner. In the several companies where we’ve collaborated, Frontenac has always engaged with management in a positive and productive way.

I am proud of the growth in scale, capabilities, and talent that TPC achieved during our partnership with Frontenac. Frontenac served as a collaborative partner and trusted strategic advisor to TPC. They worked closely with us to provide strategic perspective, supported robust pursuit of organic and acquisition growth initiatives, and made proactive investments in digital transformation and people.
