We operate and grow businesses for the long-term

Egan Legacy Partners

A Family Investment Company

Our Philosophy

Egan Legacy Partners is a family business. As a part of a family office that has deep entrepreneurial roots, we understand the unique relationship that a business owner has with the company he or she has built. We appreciate that when it comes time to sell, you need to find a partner who will nurture and sustain your business the same way you have. Egan Legacy Partners is that partner.

We look to purchase, own, and operate businesses that have a history of strong sales, enduring profitability, and continued future growth potential. We look for businesses that we can guide along a path of continued success and operate for the long term. We don’t use financial engineering to complete our deals; instead relying on sustained reinvestment enabled by minimal debt to continue to grow the business.

Our unique position as part of a well-capitalized family office enables us to leverage our highly experienced team. We can evaluate, fund, and close a deal quickly without financing contingencies, guaranteeing that when we make an offer on a business, we have the people and capital resources available to ensure that a our offer will close.

Our beliefs include

  • Respecting and maintaining the legacy of your business
  • Cultivating employees and promoting from within
  • Improving efficiency through best practices and deep expertise
  • Growth through sustained reinvestment
