Advisory services to assist companies with strategy, growth and transition.

About Charter Hill

Charter Hill Partners is an independent advisory firm focused on corporate strategy, growth and transition. Based in Omaha, our clients are located throughout the United States and include privately-held firms with concentrated ownership groups, as well as larger corporations who look to Charter Hill for outside perspective.

Charter Hill’s role in serving its clients is to bring creative ideas, relevant resources and an objective approach to each project. We collaborate with our client’s leadership to identify opportunities to improve their market position, competitive advantages, operating profits and ultimately shareholder value.

From the outset of our client relationships, we work to establish a firm understanding of their current priorities and future aspirations. From this foundation, each project is defined with mutual expectations on roles, scope, timing and preferred outcomes.

We deliver experienced project leadership and access to our vetted project resource network. This network includes industry thought leaders who can bring added project insight and experience, as well as a diverse set of private and institutional sources of capital.


Strategy – Strategic Planning | Competitive Analysis | Board Representation

A strategic plan is most effective when taking into account both capacity to execute on the plan and its alignment with shareholder objectives. We work to assist our client leadership teams to develop actionable strategies in order to build lasting value.

Corporate Development – Acquisitions | Strategic Investments | Joint Ventures

We manage corporate development initiatives that begin with a firm understanding of our client’s operating objectives in order to then identify opportunities for them to partner with, invest in or acquire companies in order to drive profitable growth.

Capital – Capital Planning | Offering Structure | Sourcing

A sound business strategy is of little value if the ability and resources required to execute the strategy are not in place. We view capital planning as critical to a firm’s ability to effectively foster growth, capitalize on timely opportunities and efficiently manage operations.

Transition – Transition Planning | Partial Liquidity | Mergers | Divestitures

To provide shareholder liquidity or exit options, we design and execute strategies to provide our clients with multiple transaction options at attractive valuations. Our efforts are conducted with a clear understanding of the delicate balance of interests in any company among its shareholders, management, employees and customers.
