We Invest More than Money.

WJ Partners adheres to a long-term commitment to mutual success and provides the guidance and necessary support to achieve shared goals. When we explore new partnerships, we want sellers to fully understand who we are and what they can expect. Three key investment philosophies inform our decisions.


A long-term investment outlook that does not rely on financial engineering and quick turnarounds to generate returns is central to WJ Partners’ mission. This approach allows us to work with management teams to develop and execute strategic plans that create sustained value. Our partners understand that our commitment, once made, is steadfast.  Our operators manage their companies with confidence, free from the worry of subsequent ownership changes or shifting short-term goals.


When parties share a vision, contribute unique resources, and cooperate efficiently, partnership can be a powerful and profitable vehicle. The ability to work closely with management teams is a critical component in WJ Partners’ evaluation process. We respect the expertise of executive teams who share our commitment to growth, and encourage their participation in meaningful equity (both stock option programs and roll-over equity) and incentive-based compensation programs. 


WJ Partners does not seek to assume operational control of its investments. Rather, we work with existing management teams to:

  • Determine fundamental business strategy.
  • Identify and recruit key players to enhance the team.
  • Oversee financing with lenders.
  • Identify and execute add-on acquisitions. 

I have the utmost respect for WJ Partners. It was a privilege to work with people of such character, integrity, and commitment. WJ Partners is the “real deal” – it’s an honor to be a part of their team.

With the explosive growth we were experiencing at Pure Barre, the relationship with WJ Partners was critical to our success. Their willingness to roll-up their sleeves with us, while at the same time helping us think about the long term, made it a special partnership.

WJ Partners exemplifies honesty, integrity and credibility. I’ve never once regretted the decision to sell my company to them. After running a small business for almost twenty-five years, I never thought I would say that.

When WJ Partners says they focus on long term value creation, they mean it.  They never pushed for short term fixes and let myself and the leadership team come up with and work on long term plans and solutions to profitably grow the business.  They offered support and connections for area expertise as needed.
