Overall Ranking (NA)

The Overall Ranking is a score from 1 star (very bad) to 5 stars (excellent) generated based on the Company Reviews of current and former employees at this company, taking everything into account.

The number you see in the middle of the donut pie chart is the simple average of these scores. If you hover over the various sections of the donut, you will see the % breakdown of each score given.

The percentile score in the title is calculated across the entire Company Database and uses an adjusted score based on Bayesian Estimates (to account for companies that have few reviews). Simply put, as a company gets more reviews, the confidence of a "true score" increases so it is pulled closer to its simple average and away from the average of the entire dataset.

The Overall Ranking is generated based on the Company Reviews.

Company Details

Vestar is a leading private equity firm specializing in middle-market management buyouts and growth capital investments. For more than 20 years, we have been seeking out talented management teams and supporting their entrepreneurial dreams, allowing them to run their companies as owners, with an eye toward long-term value creation.

Our investments in management have achieved a performance record that's among the best in our field: 69 transactions completed, in companies with a total value of over $30 billion, with consistently excellent returns. Since our founding in 1988, we have managed five investments funds, totaling $7 billion in committed capital, dedicated exclusively to middle-market private equity investing.

From our headquarters in New York, we invest in a wide variety of industries, in companies that primarily range in value from $150 million to $1.5 billion.

Wherever we invest, whatever the industry or amount of our investment, our core philosophy is always the same: partner with talented people, develop long-term relationships based on trust and honesty, and together we will achieve success.

Because people are the focus of our investments, we have chosen to make them the focus of our website as well. In videos throughout the site, our professionals and management partners will tell you about Vestar in their own words. We hope this will give you a true picture of who we are and how we work, and what a partnership with Vestar is all about.
