Team Expertise and Industry Know-How

Our Leadership Team Focuses On Developing Talent

Just Right crew.

We’ve assembled a best-in-class management team, board of directors, and advisors, all working together to execute on a strategy that is distinctly different because it’s Friendly.

Our focus on quality management, strong process and tools, and our commitment to employees, customers, and brands is reflected in the team we’ve built to deliver on these strategic priorities. With experience in private equity investment, acquisition development, strategic marketing, IT, HR, and sales, and decades of combined experience in senior level management at leading industry manufacturers, there’s a lot of power in this pack.

Doing well by doing good means recognizing that profit is ultimately generated by people, and prioritizing culture, employees, and values is how our network generates returns.

Our Team Knows the Way

Our management team, board members, and advisors have extensive operational, financial, and investment expertise. We provide the mentorship, direction, resources, and capital required to take your strategic initiatives to the next level. As a member of the Friendly Group, you will work in a peer environment of like-minded people who are committed to our industry and all pulling toward our common goals.
