With BGF’s support, we have built an excellent team who are key to everything we do. The investment allowed us to open more homes, accelerate hiring plans and invest in further training and development, at a time in which the competition for talent has been fierce. The partnership with BGF has been extremely successful and we’ve valued their approach, which is supportive yet non-controlling as a minority investor.
