Decades of Growth and Experience

After forty years of growth investing, we know that category leadership is rare. We have partnered with many of the very best companies and executives in their respective sectors. Today, we seek to apply innovation and continuous improvement to every facet of our firm to better support our current and future portfolio companies.

One Global Strategy

Across geographies and sectors, our team executes a consistent global strategy: one that is focused on powering the growth of great people and great companies and grounded in a foundational belief that profitable growth is the most reliable path to building a durable business and creating long-term value.

Specializing in Three Key Sectors

Our investment team members have built deep domain knowledge, broad networks, and trusted relationships within their sectors of focus. This expertise is further informed by Summit’s long-term commitment to these industries and the perspective gained through investments in more than 550 companies over the last four decades.

Collaborative Partnership

As a minority or majority shareholder, whether we work together to accelerate organic growth or support the creation of an acquisition-driven platform, we seek to structure investments in a manner we believe best supports the goals and growth of each portfolio company, typically investing between $10 and $500 million.

Above all, our focus is on growth — of the companies we back and the executives who lead them.

Driving Growth, Creating Value

As active board members and trusted advisors, and through the engagement of our Peak Performance Group (“PPG”), a purpose-built team that provides free, on-demand support to our portfolio companies, we work tirelessly to accelerate the growth of our portfolio companies. Our approach to value creation is different – designed specifically to provide expertise in areas we believe are critical to promoting profitable growth and building long-term value.
