The Accelerator for the Middle Market

Accelerating Growth and Maximizing Enterprise Value for Middle Market Businesses

FortéOne has been serving the needs of our sponsor and closely held business founder clients for 22 years

We’re not traditional consultants. We’re operating partners — who all come from industry.

We have led departments, built middle market businesses, and owned and exited those businesses successfully — many times over.

Organizations tend to embrace our team internally, realizing that our folks have walked in their shoes, faced similar challenges, and solved similar problems.

We’re working hand-in-hand — without resistance — which allows us to deliver greater (and faster) results.

Our people are the A-team of the C-suite.

FortéOne employs experienced business operators with three critical attributes: a solid base of hands-on experience, a track record of superior results, and the emotional intelligence to work effectively with you and your team. On average, our leadership-level experts have spent at least twenty years in the C-suite and many years in the trenches working their way up the ladder.


What Family Business owners and Private Equity investors need to know.

In today’s world of constant change, middle market business owners cannot be expected to have expertise across all critical areas. You need expert guidance to stay ahead of the competition. We share those insights on a wide range of topics of interest to middle market business owners.

We know your business because we’ve lived your business.

Our people come from all walks of corporate life and have worked inside many industries. Because to serve your business well, we need to know how a business like yours works.
