Marathon runners aren’t fazed by the unwelcomed rain shower or pothole. They have trained to overcome any obstacle. They adjust, and move on. Successful companies live by the same playbook: steadfast, adaptive and in it for the long haul.

Founded in 2001 by co-CEOs Steve Rosen and Bassem Mansour, Resilience Capital Partners is grounded in that philosophy. We are a team of world-class senior investment and operations professionals, with broad industry experience and strong track records of success.

We’ve been greatly influenced by our Midwestern roots, gaining strength from those around us who persevere during unanticipated adversity. A crop season may produce low yields. A factory may face offshore competition. Being able to adjust to these challenges is, by definition, resilience.

Investment Philosophy

We believe in partnering with management to enhance operations, strategy and finance. We take a long-term view as we are committed to providing benefits to managers and subsequent owners. We have a competitive advantage. We bring large company resources to the middle market. We manage in excess of $600 million for our global investor base which includes pension funds, insurance companies, foundations and endowments, fund of funds, wealth managers, and investment consultants.
