Straight Shooters / Supportive Group

Fund: Trident Capital

Posted by ceobythebay on 2007-09-13

PUBLIC:

I am the CEO of a privately held company that has Trident as one of its largest investors. We have had a couple of false/slow starts to our business, but Trident has been a very supportive partner through multiple rounds with deal terms that reflect the value of the business and what we need to do to give value to the common.

John Moragne is on our Board and is a bright, thoughtful and constructive member of our team. He is good at elevating conversation forcing us to be strategic and helps to maintain a productive Board environment. Like everyone I have dealt with at Trident, he is busy but always there when we need him. He has helped me recruit team members, close acquisitions, recruit outside Board members etc. He has also had others at Trident help us in a variety of ways over time including Don Dixon (client reference), Woody Marshall (education on our some areas we were interested in growing), Howard Zeprun (advice on our re-financing - he is terrific as well as exposure to all of his other partners and staff. I've also enjoyed my interactions with Venetia and Peter in the past.

Given my experience, I don't understand posts that don't feel as though they get the support from Trident and John specifically. They and he are always there, but I do sometimes need to ask.
