The Advantage of Experience

WHEN IT COMES TO OUR COLLECTIVE EXPERIENCE,
THE WHOLE IS GREATER THAN THE SUM OF OUR PARTS.
OUR PARTNERS HAVE A RICH DIVERSITY OF EXPERIENCE AND A LONG TRACK RECORD OF WORKING TOGETHER TO MAXIMIZE RETURNS FOR INVESTORS.

Hawthorn Equity Partners is a leading middle market private equity firm launched in 2005.  Hawthorn was formerly known as "Genuity Capital Partners" until its rebranding in 2013.

By integrating our multiple skills and experience, we have invested across
a range of industries, investment types, company development stages and economic cycles to build successful companies. Notably, we specialize in complicated situations with companies that require growth and expansion capital, recapitalizations, brand revitalizations, inter-generational

transfers, restructuring, bankruptcy transactions, carve-outs and industry consolidations.

We are also capable of making
larger investments by leveraging
our deep relationships with strategic co-investors. Our focus and proven experience in implementing situation specific governance gives us the flexibility to invest in controlling as well as structured minority transactions.

Our long history of forming enduring partnerships and track record of successful investing is what gives
us the advantage. Our proactive, collaborative and creative approach
is what makes us successful.
