Creating Value for Business Owners
We rely on the expertise of the founders and executive teams of our businesses, and this often means we partner with businesses in different ways. Some companies prefer to be very autonomous. They run their own strategy and approach, and may choose to leverage our resources less frequently. Other organizations like to partner more closely. They may reach out to board members, our investment team members, and our in-house consulting team called the Business Strategy & Transformation (“BST”) team, to leverage us as resources in their companies. SNH offers resources and thought partnership to all our portfolio companies as needed, and where executives find we can provide the most value.
SNH’s strategic capabilities, including its in-house Business Strategy & Transformation Team, have achieved significant value creation across the portfolio by:
- Developing, implementing, and monitoring a systematic operating model partnering with senior portfolio company management
- Creating a strategic framework and analytical capability
- Determining proven growth channels to optimize capital deployments with high internal rates of return
- Identifying and executing new sales strategies and customer support plans
- Improving margin expansion through business process optimization, including focuses on sales growth, operations, strategic procurement, talent acquisition, and business intelligence
