Who We Are

Kirchner Group is a unique values-based corporate ecosystem maximizing individual and social benefit through our unwavering commitment to the thoughtful integration of 'earning and returning.'

Earning

Every business, and every portfolio of businesses, can be improved. Our ‘earn’ model, based on decades of experience in traditional merchant banking, honing successful businesses and investments, finds the untapped value in companies, and helps them prosper through our process and domain approach.

Returning

Every business should improve the world. Our ‘return’ model includes three integrated components: ‘head’ (sharing the benefit of decades of creating solutions), ‘hip’ (capital) and ‘heart’ (passion to execute and make a difference). When these attributes are applied to social enterprise and philanthropic pursuits, the world becomes a better place.

Kirchner has an impressive team that very quickly assessed our Company and came up with solid recommendations for the future, including restructuring the staff and providing a path to a successful exit strategy.
Gerry VernerChief Executive OfficerAnyWare Group
Some businessmen just have a knack for success: they know how to create it, grow it, manage it and even snatch it back from the brink of failure.
Bob ScullyPBS Interviewer
Kirchner has been credited with having that golden touch when it comes to business.
Bob ScullyPBS Interviewer
Kirchner originally built its brand as a turnaround specialist that larger private-equity groups would bring in to fix and sell broken companies within their holdings.
Financial Post Magazine
Most investors just want to know if you’re hitting your numbers. Kirchner Group wants to know how they can help you grow into a successful, profitable social enterprise and they are willing to leverage all of their incredible contacts, resources and experience to help that happen.
Lisa CurtisFounder and CEOKuli Kuli
Today, Kirchner has found a new line of work — massaging under-performing portfolios.
Financial Post Magazine
In the past, [investors] had two options: do nothing or sell the portfolio to a secondary fund at a significant discount… Kirchner represents something in the middle, to continue working with the portfolio and maximizing the value.
Financial Post Magazine
Kirchner has been deploying its model across a series of portfolios ranging from early stage venture to mid-market buyout since 2004.
