FIRM OVERVIEW

Deer Creek Holdings is a private equity investment firm that seeks to partner with entrepreneurial companies to generate exceptional growth and returns. Deer Creek combines the investment discipline of a prominent private equity firm with the long term, patient investment philosophy of a family holding company.

 

Our investment goals are tied to the long term success of a business, not the four to five year holding requirements of traditional private equity.  Because of this, we can be patient and invest in strategies that will yield above market growth over an extended period of time.  We accomplish this by providing flexible capital solutions, resources and strong support for our manager-partners.
