A partner that believes in your vision

Clairvest trusted us and believed in our vision & business from the start. I could not have hoped for a more constructive partner. We could not have achieved this fantastic outcome without the entire team’s support!

A partner that acts with integrity

Everyone’s a good partner when things are going well, but you get to know who’s really a good partner when things aren’t going so well. I’ve seen Clairvest behave during good times and bad times, and they’ve always been more than fair. Even when they could have taken advantage of situations, they never have; they’ve always been fair. I think that’s why we went back to them [with County Waste]. It’s all about picking the right partner.

Our partner of choice

My family and I have partnered with Clairvest across three separate waste management platform investments – there is no better way to demonstrate the trust we have in them as an equity partner. During the good times and the difficult times, Clairvest has always been constructive and acted with integrity. I have had the pleasure to work closely with Ken Rotman, Michael Castellarin, Doug Horn and the Clairvest team and their passion for helping partners like Winters Bros. grow in the waste management industry stands out. Clairvest is not just money, they are our partner of choice.

A partner that lets you remain in control

I needed a capital partner that was going to let me execute my vision of where MAG should go. Clairvest was here to support me and my team, not to manage us and that made all the difference.

Joe Fluet CEO, MAG Aerospace

A true knowledge partner

We picked Clairvest because of their knowledge of the rental market and partnership approach to private equity. We shared our vision for the future, and it matched well with their intentions.
