Clayton, Dubilier & Rice was founded on a simple premise: Good businesses are built with trustworthy partners, experienced managers and sound financial underpinnings. Since 1978, we have never wavered from these principles.

Today CD&R is among the most respected private equity firms in the world, and our investors include leading financial institutions, university endowments and corporate and public pension funds.

CD&R helps management teams transform businesses. Our firm’s record is based on a culture of operations that is unparalleled in the private equity world. As a long-term partner, we encourage and support managers as they work to grow profits and improve returns. Approximately 90% of the value created by CD&R is a product of operational enhancements, as measured by EBITDA growth¹.

Our professionals include both seasoned financial professionals and senior executives with extensive experience leading large global businesses. In describing our investment model, the Harvard Business Review observed that CD&R provides important “insights into what constitutes best practice in the ownership and governance of corporate enterprises.” ²

Since 1978, many corporations, CEOs and entrepreneurs have turned to CD&R as their trusted partner. Our investments span a number of industry segments with enterprise values ranging from $1 billion to $15 billion, including some that have become definitive case studies in business transformation such as Lexmark International and Hertz.
