We believe it’s these trusted partnerships that will yield strong results. Indeed, despite the backdrop of economic uncertainty since 2008, our portfolio companies have thrived, accelerating through the downturn and growing profits year on year.
They [Inflexion] give us additional focus, they give us appropriate challenge, they make us look at some of the things that we take for granted in a different way, and working together we can speed our organic growth and we can add additional bolt-ons at a much quicker rate.
But please don’t just take our word for it – here are some kind words that business leaders of past and present portfolio companies have to say about working with Inflexion:
