Leveraging Middle Market Opportunity, Growth and Success
Stewart Kohl, Co-CEO at The Riverside Company, and his team look closely at small and mid-sized companies every single day. They have been very successful in finding the right companies, helping them get to the next level of growth and selling them again for gains for their investors and their founders.
GCP CEO Joe Roman will facilitate a conversation with Stewart about the principles and practices underlying the success of The Riverside Company’s global growth and its more than 480 investments since 1988. Stewart will also share ideas about how middle market companies can approach their own strategies for growth to increase their long-term value and provide a perspective on the resources and opportunities for the Middle Market as an asset to the growth and success of Northeast Ohio.
