Established in 2001, SJ Partners LLC (SJP) acquires middle market consumer and services companies.
The firm is distinguished by its operating perspective. We are proud of our roster of operating partners who are generally former Fortune 500 divisional CEOs; Bob Phillips, our senior consumer operating partner, ran Unilever North America.
SJP targets companies with $2 – 10 million in EBITDA (and larger on occasion) that either are traditional growth situations or are under-managed companies where the experience of our operating partners can significantly accelerate growth.
SJP also excels at working with its portfolio companies to grow by acquisition. While an SJP portfolio company, Spectrio LLC completed fourteen add-on acquisitions and grew more than twelve-fold before being acquired by the Riverside Company
SJP provides advisory services to its own portfolio companies (primarily buyside M&A) and initially provided such services to third-party clients but now focuses on serving its portfolio companies.
SJP is affiliated with the NPD Group Inc, one of the nation’s top consumer market research companies
