Callan Capital Partners
We are a 100% black owned and operated company, managed by progressive South African entrepreneurs who understand their role in driving progress through transformation.
Our experience and intellectual capital is our main competitive edge. We nurture this precious commodity because our people are the foundation upon which we develop and enable each other’s growth. We provide experience, strategic direction and active support but do not run the businesses in which we invest. Our approach is driven by a desire to support managers in improving the way businesses work because we know this is the best way to achieve lasting results and maximise the benefits to all stakeholders in the business. When considering the impact of longevity in an investment we believe that it is all about the strategy of efficiently and effectively moving our target businesses towards the achievements of their objectives.
Our team constitutes a blend of experienced staff, affiliate companies and specialists who have attained a wealth of experience and knowledge having spent their careers on the ground facing the same complexities of the challenges our target businesses face today. The depth of our team’s expertise is broad based, enabling us to value engineer composite and innovative solutions to ensure successful turnaround and sustainable growth. Our founding partners, are all highly respected business leaders in various markets and all of them have worked with leading global blue chip organisations before joining forces at Callan, to support managers in step changing the development of middle market businesses.
