    Mark and Shawn were fantastic partners in two transactions over a ten year period.  They provided excellent guidance and stewardship through the ownership and sale of XServ, Inc. as well as the buyout of TNT Crane & Rigging, Inc. and first sale transaction four years later.  They are absolutely committed to helping management teams and businesses thrive, grow and succeed.  They are outstanding partners in both good times and bad as they bring a long term perspective, relevant industry knowledge and valuable insights when needed to support a growing business.  I would never hesitate to recommend them to any business owner or management team looking for a financial growth partner.

    Mark was a valuable advisor to the Jones Industrial Holdings, Inc. board of directors from 2016 to 2020. He has great experience growing companies in the industrial services markets and was able to quickly understand our specific value creators for both our clients and our shareholders. Professional, creative and intelligent, I recommend Mark as a trusted business partner.

    Mark was an important partner for VIP Cinema during a critical point in its growth and evolution.  As we expanded VIP’s manufacturing facilities, grew its customer base and added to the senior team, Mark’s input was greatly appreciated in evaluating the opportunities and challenges ahead.  A man of integrity who I could trust, he’s one of the best investment partners I’ve had the opportunity to work with.

  • Mark Wrightsman
    During 2008-2016, Mark Evers was a very capable board director and investment partner for PaR’s organic growth and six add-on acquisitions. His strategic and organizational guidance was extremely valuable helping to assure results during times of great success as well as market challenges. As an encouraging partner, Shawn was also truly insightful and thoughtful in guidance for me - always directed at helping the company. I recommend Mark and Shawn for their ability to add deep insights and support that can help elevate a company to achieve its full potential.
