Senior Advisors

Given Castle Harlan’s long history, Castle Harlan has built a network of seasoned executives with whom we have worked and invested with over the years. Comprised of more than 100 individuals from around the world, who are established leaders in their fields, the Castle Harlan Senior Advisors bring unique insight, experience and relationships, which are often directly related and beneficial to Castle Harlan’s portfolio investments. Our network includes current and former business executives, entrepreneurs, consultants and politicians – contributing skills to the various strategic, organizational, and operational challenges our portfolio companies face. In many cases, this network includes current and former CEOs, senior managers and board members of former Castle Harlan and CHAMP portfolio companies. Castle Harlan seeks to actively engage with its Castle Harlan Senior Advisors to source transactions, assist with due diligence and then to complement the investment team’s efforts to execute on value creation plans with our portfolio companies.
