Each portfolio business and commercial property undergoes a rigorous initial assessment to determine its fiscal and operational needs, as well as its market potential. When necessary, an extensive executive search is conducted to find the best possible leader for each venture. First Capital Group’s leadership works closely with each portfolio company’s executive team to create a strategic plan that addresses core issues impacting the highest levels of business and to determine performance benchmarks that ensure solutions are being properly integrated company-wide. At each stage of execution, First Capital Group’s directors provide detailed guidance and feedback. With the completion of each major benchmark, First Capital Group’s leadership team collaborates with the venture’s senior management to evaluate their incremental success and determine the appropriate next steps.
