Episode 27: Private Equity is Keeping Your Home Pest Free - Jay Abramson & Mark McKenna of Halle Capital

The words “private equity” bring forward images of Wall Street Titans drunk on power and leverage, sucking out profits from middle market businesses and leaving behind empty shells in their wake. While that makes a great narrative, it’s not always true. Standing firmly on the other side of that narrative is Halle Capital. In today’s conversation, I speak with both Jay Abramson, Senior Partner, and Mark McKenna, Principal, of Halle Capital. This episode is a real treat. Jay & Mark really dive in to the nuts and bolts of how Halle can build value in areas of the economy most investors pass right by. If you thought that pest control and environmental services were boring – think again! Jay and Mark demonstrate how a properly executed private equity strategy can drive profits for investors, enrich founders and develop great American businesses.
