Acquire. Foster. Succeed.

About Us

Who We Are: Mark founded Hillside with a mission to invest, operate, and grow one exceptional business, while fostering a successful exit and succession for existing owners.  Our approach includes taking an active role in the business to provide absolute dedication to value creation and legacy preservation.

Who We're Not: We are not private equity, nor are we your competition.  We are committed to buying one single business and serving its employees, clients, partners, and the broader community for the long-term.

The Hillside Difference

Entrepreneurial
Succession

The success of the business and preservation of your legacy are top priorities. Expect complete dedication and focus on your business, not a portfolio approach.

Employees First

Relationships are paramount. We will treat your employees like family. They have been vital to your success and they will be vital to ours as well.

Flexibility

We understand that there is no single solution that fits every business owner’s needs. We are willing and eager to structure a transaction and succession plan that works for them.

Focus

While we evaluate each business on its own unique traits, we generally seek opportunities with the following characteristics:

  • Desire for succession plan or seek reduced involvement in the business

  • Looking to sell majority share of the business (80-100%)
