The Markham Performance Advantage is a holistic system developed through years of operating experience to enhance business value faster than comparable private equity firms. The Markham Performance Advantage creates a culture of excellence through accountability, performance enhancement and individual growth.

Comprised of our proprietary processes, the Markham Performance Advantage starts with a focus on sustainability through establishing business insights, financial disciplines and an operational check-up. Once the foundation has been set, our team implements disciplines around operational excellence, performance management and process improvement. Finally, we turn to growth through sales management and strategic planning. Sustainability → Performance → Growth.
