The people and the culture. It sounds cliché to say it, but when making the move from Dunedin, I interviewed and referenced with many private equity houses and MML stood out from the crowd; they have a truly unique culture. Our approach to investing is centred around partnership and working with people on a human level.
We are there to provide capital and strategic level support to grow value. The colour of money is all the same, so while many investors can provide capital, we combine that with strategic input to help unlock growth opportunities. We put our shoulder to the wheel and support the teams we partner with. This can mean being a sounding board for the CEO, helping execute acquisitions, improving digital marketing or supporting board level recruitment. We provide strategic level support without interfering operationally.
Family, friends, good food, the outdoors, and I am ashamed to admit it, but my phone.
