The rapid turn of events brought on by the COVID crisis has dramatically changed priorities for PE groups across all their initiatives—including portfolio company management, pending sales and purchases, and overall investment strategy. For PE Partners, the focus needs to be first on surviving the disruption but also looking for opportunities to leverage the crisis to build a stronger business.
Business owners and supply chain professionals have rarely experienced the supply chain disruptions and failures that have occurred in recent months due to the travel and production breakage resulting from this COVID-19 pandemic. These supply chain challenges are likely to continue for many months, and there is a critical need to react appropriately to minimize the impact and build a more resilient supply chain for the future.
Given the reduction or even elimination of brick and mortar presence for middle market businesses during the pandemic, an experienced partner in virtual transformation is the asset you may not have known you need.
At FortéOne, our sole mission is to help middle market businesses and their owners become performance leaders in their respective industries. That may be through analysis and implementation. Or it may be by, at your request, temporarily taking the reins of leadership. Whatever your firm needs to realize its true potential — both in your eyes and those of your investors — the experienced team at FortéOne will deliver.
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.
While every company’s challenges are uniquely their own, most boil down to issues in certain common areas. FortéOne offers services that address these areas and put your company back on a growth path. And when your challenges fall outside these areas, chances are we have helped solve those as well.
