Blackford capital and its Operating Partners have been outstanding resources to our management team at Staging Concepts. Through Blackford's strategic guidance and assistance, we have grown into new markets, developed new products, established a CRM, enhanced our sales team, and increased our online presence. Their experience level along with their commitment to excellence is unmatched. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with the team at Blackford and would highly recommend their investment approach to anyone.
Martin Stein, as a Board Member of Amtech, has contributed a tremendous amount to our firm. He helped us develop a rock solid growth plan, assisted with the development of our business model and has served as a great personal resource for me.
Since Blackford Capital acquired Key Health, there has been significant improvement to many aspects of our business. The Blackford team helped our management team assemble a strategic plan that has contributed countless positive results to our business. They have brought a new vision and level of experience that we have never had before. I have been thoroughly impressed with their guidance and ability to help carry out growth initiatives. They are a pleasure to work with and we are very fortunate to have them as part of our team.
Working at Blackford was a blast! The intimate culture of a small firm gave me a lot of access to the Managing Directors, from whom I learned a lot. I spent my internship helping them develop the pitch material for a consolidation of a number of companies… which the firm successfully completed and sold to a strategic acquirer. I felt like my work at Blackford made a big difference and was an instrumental part of the firm’s strategy.
My internship at Blackford Capital was awesome – fast-paced, a lot of responsibility, and a great team culture. I spent most of the time identifying investment opportunities, creating deal summaries, and recommending companies that the team should buy. The most exciting part was they actually closed on a deal I found: Staging Concepts. I would recommend an internship at Blackford Capital to anyone interested in a career in finance or business.
I’ve found that everyone at Blackford has a wide range of knowledge and is easily approachable. I can reach out to them at any time for help and guidance in every aspect of my career, and this has led to a much greater understanding of the industry on my part.
I really appreciate the hands-on experience that Blackford provides. We are contributing real work throughout the deal process from start to finish.
