IGP WAS FORMED IN 1997 by Michael Beaumont, Gottfried Tittiger and Patrick Forster, each of whom brings substantial private equity investment and operating experience to the firm. For the last sixteen years, the Partners have been fully or partially responsible for investing approximately $1.2 billion of equity capital in middle-market manufacturing companies and have collectively completed over 135 debt and equity transactions totaling over $30 billion. The firm has an outstanding track record of managing growth successfully and creating shareholder value.
Aside from their experience in private equity, the Partners also have substantial management experience gathered at organizations such as Litton Industries and General Electric. These experiences allow IGP to be a value-added investor, providing unique insights in dealing with a multitude of strategic and operational matters that may arise during the investment process. The Partners have also worked alongside many of the most highly regarded business leaders in North America, in organizations reflecting some of the richest pools of management talent available today. Access to these resources is uncommon for most middle-market companies and IGP utilizes these resources where appropriate to help unlock value in its portfolio holdings.
