Pentahold acts as an active shareholder by being closely involved in determining the company’s vision and strategy. Defining and monitoring financial and strategic objectives is a crucial part of our approach. As management is an essential partner in determining and executing the strategic plan, Pentahold is also actively involved in the selection and recruitment of the management team.
Pentahold’s management has experience as an active partner of successful companies in the Benelux since 1999. This experience in sectors such as food, applied chemistry, machine construction, retail and pharmaceuticals, in combination with the use of a very extensive network, means that Pentahold can create added value in countless situations. Pentahold strives to create added value by acting as a sounding board for management, without intending to take over the day-to-day management itself, and by providing access to the network of valuable contacts with extensive industry knowledge and financial competences of investors and management.
