Kilmer Capital Partners

About

Kilmer Capital Partners is a leading private equity investor in Canada focused on investments in small to mid-sized businesses undergoing periods of rapid growth, significant change or ownership transition.

Our team of investment managers have worked together for over 10 years partnering with management teams with vision. We have built a successful track record backing Canada’s strongest business leaders to effect plans that transform their businesses from entrepreneurially-run small to mid-sized Canadian companies to professionally run national and international success stories.

Our investment team and extended network of business leaders provide our portfolio companies with as much support as they need. In addition to our capital, we’ll roll up our sleeves and assist management when requested. Our long history as owners and investors in Canada is reflected in the quality of our collective relationships and experiences which we bring to every opportunity for the benefit of our management partners. Furthermore, our in-house human resources, accounting, tax, legal, treasury and due diligence capabilities are often leveraged by our portfolio companies.
