Trinity Hunt Partners, a private equity firm focused on services businesses, has launched its new commercial landscaping platform in conjunction with its investment in Riverside Services.
Riverside provides commercial landscaping maintenance, enhancement and design services, as well as winter services. The company also works selectively with high-end residential clients and has served the greater Boston area for nearly 50 years. It employs roughly 100 people.
The Trinity Hunt team is partnering with Riverside’s President Mark Levine, who will remain a significant shareholder. As a tenured operator with broad reach in the commercial landscaping industry, Levine will build out the national platform, evaluate future partnership opportunities and drive the company's operations.
“Riverside’s seasoned team has established a strong reputation for excellence in client service and delivery,” says Garrett Greer, partner at Trinity Hunt. “Our partnership will focus on developing a leading commercial landscaping maintenance and enhancement services platform — building on Riverside’s strong presence in the Northeast and strategically investing within key markets across the U.S. alongside like-minded businesses and operators.”
Leveraging its experience scaling services businesses, Trinity Hunt will support the platform’s expansion through organic and inorganic growth strategies, including a field support function with the financial and strategic resources to further enable service as the platform grows.
“This growth-focused partnership will open new doors for our valued employees and customers, and Riverside’s role as the first investment in the platform creates a unique opportunity for our team to help shape its future,” Levine says. “The Trinity Hunt team is well-versed in expanding leading services businesses and shares our commitment to accelerating growth while upholding our core values and high customer care standards.”
