From early engagement in the due-diligence process to ongoing support as management advisors, GGC operating partners play an important role throughout the investment process. Operating partners are assigned to portfolio companies based on relevant skills and needs at each company.
In most cases, the operating partners also will serve on the portfolio company board of directors, typically as the non-executive chairman of the board. While GGC has a core group of operating partners, we continue to actively source and evaluate new partners for these roles.
GGC relies on a strong network of business advisors to source transactions, provide strategic advice to the fund and our portfolio companies, and to act as conduits to local business communities.
