“After building several companies during my career, I had the opportunity to acquire Temcor, a business I had been running as its president. Solis’ sponsorship enabled me to execute the buyout quickly.

The Solis principals are smart and strategic, bringing a wealth of experience that can add value to any business. The team is insightful and provides a remarkable network of resources while not over-managing. This is key for accomplished operating executives looking for support, but freedom to execute.

Nothing is more frustrating to me than a private equity partner that doesn’t add value and takes up management’s time. Solis is a firm that adds value. When you work with Solis, you get more than you expect.” – Joe Schmidt, CEO
