About Grumman Hill Group, LLC

Grumman Hill was founded in 1985 for private equity investments in small to middle market companies with outstanding leadership and strong growth potential. We have typically invested in CEOs whose firms have established business models yet are still early in their development. Grumman Hill typically does not take majority positions in companies nor does it participate in pure exits. Instead we are a backer of teams and provider of growth capital.
