The professionals at HCI Equity Partners provide a unique and complementary mix of skills built on successful and extensive operating and investment experience. The Firm is led by Managing Partners Dan Dickinson, Doug McCormick and Scott Rued. While the Partners have led and guided the company together since 2003, they have a long history of successful working relationships with one another prior to working as a team at HCI Equity Partners. All three Partners share a common vision and mission as well as a common perspective on critical success factors which results in a strong, cohesive culture of success at the firm.
Joining the Managing partners are three full time Operating Partners, Jim Forese, Kevin Cramton and Bob Hund, who have distinguished records as senior corporate executives and extensive operational leadership at IKON Office Solutions, IBM, Ford, Caterpillar and Manitowoc.
Four Managing Directors, with a solid history of success, support the Partners. All of the Managing Directors have held operating leadership positions, have LBO experience, and have substantial industrial sector knowledge. The team is rounded out with an impressive Vice President and Associate staff and is supported by a professional finance team.
HCI is distinguished from its competitors based on the significant operating experience of its Principals.
