About Us

Stacker Holdings is a private equity firm that helps business owners and management teams who care deeply about their companies retire or obtain liquidity.  We are a non-traditional private equity firm.  We roll up our sleeves and work alongside management teams in the businesses in which we invest. 

Our Approach

We focus on a small group of companies and investment opportunities so that we can give more attention to each business. We have no set timelines or requirements for liquidity so we sell when the time is right for all stakeholders.    

We typically serve as active board members.  We take on various special projects at the companies to assist management teams.  These initiatives are typically focused on growing the business, growing the team, or refining processes and improving operations.  Specific examples range from developing an M&A strategy and approaching acquisition targets, to hiring key employees, to gathering and assembling data about the businesses that help management teams make better decisions.
