MEET THE TEAM

Core Values

Collaboration

Earnest collaboration with a common goal in mind builds stronger teams and solutions. Harnessing a cooperative and agile strategy gives us the power to collectively achieve more.

Connection

Building positive and lasting relationships drives the success of our business and communities. Our connections among people and organizations are vital and valued.

Diligence

From the investment process to operations, all projects receive the same steadfast commitment and thoughtfulness to the end. Always.

Diversity

An inclusive culture is embodied from the top down. Utilizing each individual’s unique strengths and perspectives amplifies our overall success as a team.

Innovation

At our core is an entrepreneurial spirit. Leveraging the power of technology, a creative mindset and broad vision allows us to discover new potential.

Integrity

A principled and considerate approach guides all of our actions. Integrity is fundamental to how we perform our work and treat our colleagues inside and outside the firm.

Office Mural

In the heart of our office is the Kinzie mural. Completed with the help of all team members and their families, it features Kinzie’s core elements rooted above the handprints of its youngest contributors. This artwork connects what we do with who we are, and serves as a bright and bold example of our culture and people.

Internship Program

We host several MBA graduate students and undergraduate students throughout the year through our partnerships with The University of Chicago Booth School of Business and Northwestern University. Kinzie interns receive an immersive experience in private equity, with direct access to senior management and the entire investment process. Along with a high-touch approach and professional mentorship, our interns have the opportunity to participate in all aspects of the firm including social, volunteer and educational activities.

We have developed a supportive culture and dynamic experience with our internship program, and are proud to introduce each new class of interns to the Kinzie way.
