Evergreen is a holding company that acquires and operates a group of leading service companies. Selling your business is one of the biggest decisions you will make in your lifetime. Owners and founders of services businesses trust Evergreen to help them achieve their long-term goals and to steward their legacy. We are committed to acquiring and holding businesses indefinitely and empowering management teams with a proven playbook for growth.
We’ve succeeded in guiding companies through the next stage of their growth. Our north star is our mission to be North America’s best home for businesses and their leaders. That means we empower employees and treat each deal as a unique opportunity to work with owners to support and grow businesses into perpetuity.
We believe the single greatest input to our operational success is our CEOs and we also believe in attributes over experience. Evergreen’s CEO program directly places MBA graduates at the helm of businesses we acquire in a variety of management roles and have seen these leaders grow into running our highest-performing businesses. We have the benefit of sharing best practices between the exceptional leadership teams across our portfolio.
We are committed to specific industries and all Evergreen companies have access to the community platform that connects leaders across the entire portfolio. We believe that by connecting CEOs and other team members with their counterparts at other companies, everyone can learn and grow.
