Chris Jann

“I had never seen a deal so well organized and well structured. Everything was in order and that gave me confidence we would get the transaction done.”


Founder and CEO, Medicus IT

Steve- Banke | Ntiva/3Points

“We knew our employees wanted the upward mobility that comes with being part of a larger organization. Cogent Growth Partners knew that a culture fit was more important to us than the numbers.”


Former CEO, 3Points

Steven Freidkin, CEO, Ntiva

“Our company exists to grow people. “Technology is an accelerant to that growth. As soon as a founder or executive says to me, ‘This isn’t about people. We can hire college kids and replace them every two years’ I know that company is not for us.”


CEO, Ntiva

Don Epstein - Meritas Capital Partners

“Meritas Capital Partners is not a typical private equity firm because we invest with our own money. We were looking for a platform company that already had an operational executive ready to take over when the transaction was complete.”


Co-Founder, Meritas Capital Partners
