KCM adheres to an approach rooted in
honesty, integrity and respect in all that we do.  We couple a sincere admiration for a company’s heritage and culture with a patient, long-term and results-oriented strategy that results in “win-win” transactions and establishes a solid foundation for future success.  

KCM was founded in 2017 on a simple mantra -
Keeping Continuity Matters - which is emblematic of our belief in the importance of a healthy culture and collaborative, trustworthy partnerships.  We embrace this philosophy, both within our firm and with our portfolio partners, which allows us to take a more targeted approach and devote our time to making a long-lasting and differentiated impact on our companies. 

With these guiding principles in mind, we strive to return to the basics of successful investing by refocusing on the human element of business and supporting founders and management teams of niche market leaders with creative solutions and strategic guidance to effect transformational growth.
