SECTORStaffing and Recruiting / Business Services
Longacre partners with ambitious management teams to help them grow their businesses through strategic guidance, growth capital or add-on acquisitions.
Taylor Hopkinson is a fast-growing recruitment industry focused exclusively on the global renewable energy industry, providing both permanent and contract staff to a wide range of blue-chip customers across the entire value chain from project financing to offshore construction and maintenance.
- Taylor Hopkinson was growing rapidly and its young and ambitious management team wanted strategic guidance to fully capitalise on the opportunities
- The company’s systems and infrastructure required an upgrade to cope with continued rapid international expansion
- The founding shareholders wanted to de-risk and cash out some of their investment after eight years of “boot-strapped” growth
- Longacre introduced an experienced chairman Stewart Cantley, who previously led the global expansion of a staffing and recruitment business as CEO
- We provided liquidity to the founding team and supplied a growth capital facility
- We worked with an experienced CFO to upgrade the company’s financial systems
