“Entrepreneurs are looking for strategic, operational support to make their vision a reality,” said Mike Gregoire, Partner. “The experiences and relationships our team brings from their decades in software development, sales effectiveness, recruiting and product management will be instrumental in helping our portfolio companies establish and sustain global leadership positions in the markets they serve.”
“We are grateful to our Partners who have chosen to support Brighton Park as we build a next generation growth equity firm,” said Erica Keany Blob, Partner and Chief Operating Officer. “Our team has built a strong foundation for continued success, and we thank our investors for the confidence they have placed in us.”
