Our Approach

Wynnchurch Capital is a leading solutions-oriented investor in fundamentally well-positioned companies that are undergoing change. Key factors that separate us from others in our industry include:

  • Proven Performance. Even in a challenging economy, we’ve maintained a solid track record, helping companies and investors achieve their strategic goals and maximize returns
  • Management Autonomy. Rather than “taking over the company,” we let ownership retain control, as long as sound judgment is in place
  • Flexible Communication. We’ll keep in touch the way you prefer—expect proactive, consistent, frank dialogue about funds, performance and other issues
  • Easy Accessibility. Unlike larger firms, we won’t give you the run-around—when you need answers, Wynnchurch responds promptly
  • Genuine Interest. More than just a capital resource, we become deeply involved in understanding each business to develop strategies that will result in successful performance improvement and financial returns
