WestView Capital Partners was founded in 2004 to focus on partnering with outstanding founders and entrepreneurs to help them grow their firms through technology, innovation, opportunism, hard work and grit. Since inception, WestView has executed on its vision of being helpful yet unintrusive to our management team partners. WestView has raised five funds totaling $2.7 billion and has invested in 60 companies. We pride ourselves on being complimentary partners to passionate entrepreneurs with domain expertise so deep, it’s effectively “in their blood.” We focus on helping entrepreneurs grow and evolve their organizations as they navigate the many opportunities and challenges that come with growth. We have significant experience with high growth companies, having helped many more than double in size during our investment period. Approximately half of WestView’s investments have in been minority positions, and across all investments, management ownership has averaged 40%, allowing owner operators to meaningfully benefit from the growth we achieve together.

We believe culture defines great organizations. As such, we never look to change the cultures of the companies we invest in. We look to expand upon the attributes that our entrepreneurs have successfully instilled in their organizations. WestView differentiates itself through its ownership flexibility, longstanding track record of working with growth companies and being a true value-added partner to its entrepreneurs. We have also continued on as an investor in multiple companies where WestView was the first institutional capital as a testament to our commitment to being a longstanding growth company investor.

WestView is still led by its five founding members 20 years after the firm was founded in 2004—Rick Williams, Carlo von Schroeter, Matt Carroll, Jonathan Hunnicutt and John Turner. The next generation at WestView has also been with the firm for over a decade—Greg Thomas (2012), Jeff Clark (2011) and Kevin Twomey (2014). Across the four managing partners, they have partnered with over 100 companies over the last 35 years, staying true to WestView’s founding principles of being excellent partners to founders and management teams.

Capital Responsibility

At WestView, we seek to make sector-focused investments in growth-oriented companies that are led by exceptional entrepreneurs. We partner with existing management teams that are passionate about continuing to build their business while owning a meaningful stake in the future success we seek to create together. We believe that effective corporate governance and a commitment to environmental and social responsibility are important components of private company investing, and thus strive to integrate the consideration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into our pre-investment diligence analysis, ongoing portfolio company monitoring efforts and exit positioning strategy.

Since our founding in 2004, a focus on integrity and business ethics has been core to our firm’s investment strategy and brand identity. We implemented a formal ESG policy in 2022, though our commitment to developing strong relationships with the investors and management teams we partner with has always required us to act with integrity throughout the investment and WestView firm building processes. We value the collaborative partnership we form with these stakeholders and believe our commitment to incorporating ESG factors into our investment process will help sustain and further strengthen our firm’s reputation with investors and management teams alike.
