Founded by Simon Jones and joined in early-2018 by former Hasselblad CEO, Michael Hejtmanek, Mainsheet OP is deeply influenced by the lessons borne out of the two principals’ mutual passion for helping private equity investment groups generate strong value from their global manufacturing acquisitions. With more than 50 years of combined expertise transforming and reinvigorating businesses as both chief executives and management consultants, Jones and Hejtmanek are masters of the principles, practices, and traits common to successful value creation plans as well as the people tasked with executing them.
Mainsheet OP only recruits Operating Partners with a broad-based background in manufacturing business transformation, value creation, and executive mentoring, as well as the social intelligence skills needed to establish the trust and confidence of the leadership team and its plan. These are the qualities found in every Mainsheet OP engagement.
At Mainsheet OP, we are intimately familiar with the power and importance of establishing and maintaining pace across the entire value creation process. We add our skills and experience to the established leadership team with a particular focus on assisting the CEO.
The extensive business transformation and value creation expertise of our operating partners means they’re experienced with and vigilant to the risks that, if not fully understood or detected early, can delay or even derail even the best value creation plan.
In short, the goal of every Mainsheet OP operating partner is to provide behind-the-scenes support to the CEO and leadership team through the prism of our expertise and experience in the value creation process. This is the kind of value only real-world experience can deliver.
Other qualities unique to our operating partners include:
Executive-level experience with multinational companies
Demonstrated ability in creating value across disparate business sectors and deal types in any economic climate
Outstanding social intelligence and executive mentoring skills
A history of creating shareholder value
Competitive mindset coupled with a direct, time-is-money approach to plan execution
Experience in at-pace restructuring, reorganizing, and transforming core operating components of a business
