Maurice Murphy

CEO of former Turnspire Company UPG and board member of Turnspire portfolio company Daniel

There is a huge number of middle market PE firms, all competing for the same deals.  Turnspire is different.  They actively seek out complex deals, which typically have less competition and often result in over-sized equity gains.  Following acquisition, Turnspire supported our significant strategic initiatives, enabling me to completely transform UPG into a diverse and more compelling business.

Trevor Myers

Former CEO, Cloyes Gear and Products (KPS portfolio company)

Turnspire’s disciplined investment style, collaborative approach and flexible model really attracted me.  Turnspire takes the time to listen, understand my objectives in a potential partnership, and then works with me to tailor the role to the specifics of the particular transaction.

John Marinucci

Former CEO and board member, New Flyer Industries (TSE: NFI)

I like that Turnspire brings the rigor of larger companies and larger investment firms to the lower middle-market.  I have also found that we are consistently like-minded when assessing challenges facing under-performing industrial businesses and crafting investment theses to address those challenges.  Turnspire professionals value my input and treat our work together as a true partnership.
