Sun Capital Observes 25th Anniversary

Sun Capital Partners, Inc. (“Sun Capital”) is observing its 25th anniversary in 2020 as a leading private investment firm specializing in leveraged buyouts and investments in market-leading companies. Founded in 1995 by Co-CEOs Marc Leder and Rodger Krouse, Sun Capital, known for its operational focus, has grown into a global firm that has raised seven funds and invested in more than 375 companies with revenues of approximately $50 billion.

“As we reflect on Sun Capital’s progress over the past 25 years, we are thankful for the partnerships we have built with our portfolio company teams, our limited partners, intermediaries and colleagues,” said Leder. “We have a great team that is passionate about seizing the opportunities and addressing the challenges that lie ahead, and we will continue to be guided by our shared values of teamwork, integrity, mutual accountability and transparency.”

Sun Capital pioneered investing in turnaround businesses and has evolved its investment approach to also include taking businesses from good to great, in all cases by applying the Sun Transformation System in partnership with management teams. Sun Capital invests in companies across Industrial, Consumer, Healthcare and Business Services sectors.

“As we have all experienced in recent months, the next 25 years will bring much change and create unexpected needs and opportunities. Continuous improvement is part of our culture and given Sun Capital’s operational focus and experience successfully navigating many economic cycles, I know we’ll meet these challenges head-on and keep getting better,” said Krouse. “We are grateful for the continued support of our investors.”

As part of its anniversary year, the Sun Capital Foundation is making donations to support the important work of a variety of charitable organizations, including a $1 million donation to Boca Raton Regional Hospital’s Keeping the Promise campaign.
