Steve King Sr.

CEO, Tomah Holdings

I first met Seidler after I decided that I needed an equity partner to help redeem the stock of a large shareholder while preparing the balance sheet for an aggressive growth plan. We had a host of prominent institutions offering us term sheets, all with solid pedigrees of success.

As an owner-operator, my desires were to find a partner who had the flexibility to work with us on a number of scenarios including the potential of creating a legacy company for my two sons and son-in-law. I feel blessed that the Seidler team understood this vision. As they say, the rest is history.

The Seidler approach, style and empathy were simply different, appealing and unique among the equity houses with which I was familiar. Throughout our partnership, the Seidler team provided sage advice as we navigated a very competitive marketplace and was always available and willing to support our initiatives with a roll-up-the sleeves attitude and an enthusiasm that was contagious.

Seidler understands what it means to be a true partner. From the outset of our relationship through our eventual exit together, their team exhibited the highest levels of integrity and, frankly, made our company better. They always had my interests in mind in all decisions we made. If I get the chance to do it again, I know who I am calling!
