Chris Sanzone

Chairman, Inno-Pak

"The Emerald Lake team and I worked together to develop a unique strategy and execute on it to create Pacific Defense, an innovative leader in defense electronics. Emerald Lake’s creativity, shared vision, and willingness to invest in the long-term growth potential of Pacific Defense set them apart from others I’ve worked with in my [30] year career.”

Travis Slocumb

CEO, Pacific Defense

“Emerald Lake distinguished themselves from the outset by their deep understanding of our business and market. Our ongoing partnership is invaluable as we build ESH. I’ve leveraged Emerald Lake’s extensive network to source management talent and their M&A experience to execute add-on acquisitions. I truly value their approach to working with management to build businesses for sustainable growth.”

Rob Logan

CEO, Electrical Source Holdings

“Over the years I’ve been approached by many PE firms looking to buy my business. After 12 years, I made the biggest decision of my career and chose to partner with Emerald Lake, and it’s one I haven’t regretted a day since. For me it came down to the high level of trust and confidence I had in the Emerald Lake team and our shared vision for the future. Emerald Lake’s unique approach and deep experience helped grow my business over 50% in the first 10 months of our partnership.”
