Covenant Surgical Partners

Covenant experienced unprecedented growth in its operations and complexity during DFW’s ownership.

DFW’s patience, perspective, and guidance were critical in helping us achieve our goals.”

–  Lew Little, CEO

Evolution Research Group

“What we were able to accomplish at Evolution Research Group would not have been possible without the partnership with DFW Capital. They understood what we wanted to accomplish, shared our vision, and guided us while entrusting me and my team to manage day-to-day operations. Together, we developed our growth strategy and worked closely to execute the strategy, but with incredible flexibility. We remained nimble and responsive to our clients, our research subjects, and our staff throughout the entire hold period. This is an invaluable quality in a private equity partner, and I would recommend them without reservation to any entrepreneur serious about growing a business under the construct of a highly collaborative partnership.” 

– Lori Wright, Founder & CEO


“DFW was an invaluable and steady partner for management as we continued to build Fleetwash into the nation’s leading specialty power-washing provider. We were delighted to team up with the firm twice over the years, and would highly recommend the firm to anybody seeking a value-added business partner to help grow their business.”

– Vito DiGiovanni, Founder & CEO

Information Innovators

“We were looking for a financial partner that brought more than money, and DFW wildly exceeded our expectations as their unwavering support, strategic advice, and steady encouragement were instrumental. The DFW team guided us through our transition to a “large” business, managed the negotiations and financing of our acquisition strategy, and helped our team navigate the various potential pitfalls one faces when tripling the size of a business. DFW were true partners exhibiting the utmost integrity, fairness, and forward thinking with our entire management team.”

– Steve Ikirt, CEO

ReSource Pro

As a fast growing business with rapidly evolving needs and challenges, ReSource Pro has benefitted tremendously from DFW’s guidance and patience as they work hand-in-hand with us to create value for the business and its stakeholders. In a short period of time we have set ReSource Pro on a path to long-term sustainability and growth, while evolving our business model to further address the demands of the marketplace.”

DFW has stood by us shoulder to shoulder every step of the way, always supportive, insightful, solution-focused; bringing their obvious and vast experience to bear enabling us to deliver significant growth and high returns.”

-Alan Cooke, CEO
