Deep Sector Experience

We have decades of experience in select sectors and can provide deep insight on how to navigate the complex challenges that await growth businesses.

Individualized Growth Plans

We do not believe a “one-size-fits-all” approach achieves category leadership. We have the scale to provide the guidance our partners need to become better leaders and generate superior outcomes.

We offer you access to our deep bench of operating executives and advisors and can help you attract and retain premier talent across your leadership team.

Brentwood invests in consumer products and services companies across a variety of consumer subcategories.  We focus on businesses that have developed exceptional customer loyalty and engagement, leading to best-in-class customer lifetime value metrics and allowing our leadership teams to invest aggressively in both new customer acquisition and customer retention.

We help our partner companies accelerate growth across distribution channels.  Over the past two decades, we have developed deep expertise in driving the direct-to-consumer channel through sophisticated direct marketing efforts, both online and offline.
