Privilege of Focus.
Architect invests in established businesses with recognized brands, intellectual property, and/or proven track records that have withstood the test of time and market cycles. Typically, we pursue acquisitions of businesses that are at an inflection point in their respective history where new ownership is warranted, and the business can benefit from a renewed privilege of focus.
From our principals’ 100+ years of investment and operating experience, we understand the challenges and opportunities of under-served businesses in the lower middle market. With our deep bench of operators, we provide attentive support across all business functions to drive efficiency while empowering management teams to focus on sustainable value creation.
Consistency of Process.
We are a dedicated and efficient team that is regimented in process to ensure consistent outcomes. We pride ourselves in being a reliable equity partner to corporate and private sellers through a transaction process and to our management teams throughout an investment lifecycle.

Our Team

Architect is comprised of a highly experienced team of investors and operators. We have navigated through innumerable business challenges across a range of situations and industries.
