Not Your Typical Private Equity Firm

Shoreline professionals follow a total stakeholder model, meaning success should be a “win-win” proposition for shareholders, employees, customers, vendors, and the communities within which our companies operate. At Shoreline, we believe in honesty, incentive alignment, and creating bigger, better businesses without relying on financial engineering or cost cutting to generate our returns. Our relentless focus on growth and what we believe to be a best-in-class incentive equity pool for management has proven to be a strong recipe for success for both Shoreline and our partners. We pride ourselves on “winning” the right way.
