About Us

About

Corinthian Capital was founded in 2005 with the conviction that the best opportunities for building value continue to occur in the North American mid-sized company market.  We still believe that to this day.

We appreciate that the entrepreneurs who took the risk to build their businesses over decades deserve a steward with the acumen and sensibility to empower their management team to achieve the business’ full potential during the next stage of their company’s growth.  Throughout our history as investors – across many sectors and economic cycles – we believe we have proven to be the right partners for these owners and executives

We take the time to understand each company and to tailor an investment structure with careful regard to its growth needs and market position.  Following an investment, we work alongside management – and many times alongside the founder/operator who remains involved in the business – to carefully execute on a shared vision and strategic business plan. 

We encourage you to learn more about our past successes, our current portfolio and our team to better understand how we can partner with you to achieve your goals.  Additionally, if you’d like to learn more about working with Corinthian as a business owner, member of a portfolio company management team, or as an advisor to such companies, please explore the sections on this site under For You and Corinthian Perspective.

Investment criteria

Corinthian Capital specializes in working personally with entrepreneurs, business owners, and management teams to assist companies in realizing their untapped potential.

At Corinthian Capital, we take the time to understand each company. We tailor each company’s investment structure with careful regard to its growth needs and market position.  Our investment professionals have broad and diverse industry experience with particular domain expertise in logistics, niche consumer products and services, healthcare, and telecom & utility infrastructure.  We focus on opportunities with strong business models in light manufacturing and assembly, distribution, and services.

 Many of the companies we’ve invested in since 2005 share the following attributes :

  • Strong free cash flow conversion profiles consisting of reasonable capital expenditure and working capital requirements
  • Located primarily in North America – although many of the companies also have global sales, manufacturing, and distribution operations
  • Defensible market positions and competitive advantages with low technological risk
  • Proven, high-quality operating management teams in-place or “on-deck”
  • Good operating leverage, where modest sales growth leads to accelerated earnings
