We have a very clear understanding of the Firm’s purpose, where and how we will compete, and what capabilities are required to win. At the same time, we are committed to be the best partners that we can be. Our goal is to maintain our special position in the private equity industry by never wavering from the unique vision and values upon which the Firm was founded.
We achieve that goal if we build better businesses, meet our limited partners’ expectations and remain the preferred partner of management teams around the world.
Our professionals are united by a shared sense of purpose and the deep values that inform the commitments we make to our commercial partners and the communities in which we operate.
All of us feel bound to CD&R because we believe it is a special place.
