Who We Are

We believe in being engaged partners 

Founded in 2002, Champlain Capital is a Private Equity Fund that invests in niche manufacturing, consumer products,
distribution, healthcare, and non-financial services businesses.

Our team is led by investment professionals and operating executives with unusually deep experience and a genuine commitment to increasing the value of our portfolio businesses. We have invested over $1 billion in more than 70 companies over the span of our careers.

Our mission is to invest in good companies that provide customers with meaningful products and services combined with a history of solid financial performance. We add value by working with our management teams in a variety of collaborative ways: Strategic planning, organizational assessment and talent acquisition, strengthening operating functions, capital for infrastructure and acquisitions, and accessing network of outside resources.

We have been business operators ourselves and understand the challenges faced by management teams. Our job is to help companies grow and we have done this successfully for decades. Since our philosophy is “we all win together,” we always align interests by allocating equity ownership to the management team.
