Value enhancement has become firmly embedded within Doughty Hanson’s culture. We develop specific active ownership programmes for each of our portfolio companies and, by combining our expertise with the vision and entrepreneurial flair of our portfolio company managers, we implement the agreed strategy to maximise the value of our investments.
We started building our in-house capabilities in this area more than a decade ago. Our experienced team is composed of seasoned professionals with varied backgrounds in supply chain management, procurement, marketing, manufacturing and sustainability. We have also built up a broad network of relationships with external specialists who complement the work of our in-house team.
Our ability to prioritise and apply a broad range of value enhancement skills across the portfolio helps us to enhance top-line growth, cut costs and generate cash. This approach is central to many of the positive outcomes we continue to see across the portfolio.
