About Us

Wind Point Partners is a private equity investment firm that partners with top caliber executives to acquire middle market businesses where we can establish a path to value creation.

Since our founding in 1984, we have raised over $2.8 billion in commitments and acquired more than 90 platform companies and 160 add-on acquisitions. We are currently investing from a $915 million fund closed in April 2009.

Distinctive Strategy

We bring together the following three key elements in each transaction:

  • Top Caliber Executive. We recruit exceptional executives who will be our partners in selecting and acquiring a company where they can develop and lead a tactical value creation plan.
  • Middle Market Company. We identify and acquire well-positioned businesses with value creation opportunities that are a good match with our executive’s skill set and industry expertise.
  • Path to Value Creation. We help companies reach their potential by identifying growth and operational improvement opportunities that can be implemented with our executive partner.

Wind Point’s professionals work together seamlessly in the pursuit of investment success. Our team is led by seven managing directors who have over 120 years of combined private equity experience and an average tenure at Wind Point of 16 years. In addition to our in-house team, we have an established network of seasoned and accomplished Executive Advisor Partners (EAPs) who assist us in our process and invest alongside us in every transaction.
