DENVER, CO, Oct. 16, 2014 -- In an effort to pursue further opportunities within the industry, Excellere Partners, a Denver-based private equity firm focused on partnering with middle-market entrepreneurs and management teams, recently announced that it has partnered with two long-time specialty chemical industry leaders, Paul Turgeon and Boyd Wainscott.
Turgeon and Wainscott, each with three decades of experience in senior specialty chemical leadership positions, will allow Excellere to quickly assess opportunities, broaden its investment considerations and accelerate the company's proprietary Value Creation Process.
According to Excellere Principal Patrick O'Keefe, "Having Paul and Boyd working with us allows Excellere to identify the most attractive segments and investment opportunities, efficiently perform due diligence and provide immediate value to companies following investment."
According to Turgeon, "The increasing need for water in energy, industrial, agricultural, and potable applications is a global megatrend. Specialty chemicals play an increasingly important role by enabling more efficient and cost-effective use of water."
