Evergreen Services Group

Evergreen Services Group

San Francisco, CA, USA
Posted on Monday, April 22, 2024

Evergreen Services Group is a San Francisco based holding company that acquires and operates B2B services companies across North America. Since its founding in late 2017, Evergreen has completed 80+ acquisitions across Managed IT Services, Cybersecurity, Financial Software and Government Services. We are driven by a people first mission to marry capital allocation with inspired operations, thus creating North America’s best home for businesses.

The Evergreen holding company team is comprised of 35+ professionals based in San Francisco who are focused on capital allocation, M&A, executive level hiring, strategic board leadership, and finance and accounting. Evergreen is a uniquely long-term oriented holding company that seeks to hold and grow businesses indefinitely rather than follow the 5-7 year holding period of a typical private equity fund. This allows us to take a truly long-term view on performance and people. Evergreen is backed by Alpine Investors, a leading private equity firm focused on the services and software industries with $16B+ in AUM.

Overview

The day-to-day responsibilities will include:

  • Identifying and reaching out to business owners via phone, email and in-person
  • Managing our database and owning relationships with business owners
  • Crafting a compelling message and story to business owners as to why they should sell to Evergreen
  • Qualifying and analyzing deals based on Evergreen’s investment criteria
  • Working with key stakeholders and senior management to win the deal and carry it through the diligence process, ultimately owning the process from first conversation to signed deal independently
  • Working closely with our MSP group leaders and CEO
  • Attending industry events and representing Evergreen externally
  • Working with investing and senior management team to evaluate and execute deals

This is an impactful opportunity to spend a significant amount of time building relationships and speaking with business owners. You will own and drive these relationships forward through email, phone calls, conferences, and be responsible for bringing new acquisition opportunities to the table. You will interface with CEOs, Evergreen Senior Management, and Bankers/Brokers on a daily basis. You will also be responsible for basic financial analysis, deal qualifying and ultimately signing up new acquisitions. This role will come with a lot of autonomy and responsibility early on.

Evergreen’s success is predicated on the ability to generate interesting investment opportunities and help add to our family of companies every year. Therefore, our ideal candidate is excited about this role long-term and is eager to contribute to the next phase of Evergreen’s legacy.
