Distinct CEO program
CEOs are at the center of everything we do. We recruit exceptional CEOs who share our values and our passion for building enduring purpose-driven companies. We then match these CEOs with businesses looking to accelerate growth in their next chapter.
Through years of building purpose-driven companies, we have identified strategic levers that lead to enduring businesses. With the Alpine Playbook, we bring you market-tested, expert information to help you and your team build a company that makes you proud.
Our roster of exceptional CEOs is ready from Day One to support a smooth and engaged management transition.
We are committed to being an excellent partner to our intermediaries and we strive to deliver feedback on new deals within 24 hours.
We have a Sprint/Pass Playbook that enables us to move with speed and certainty once we determine that a deal fits our model.
We offer an attractive buy-side fee and are excited to hear about opportunities that may be a great fit for Alpine.
We are committed to creating the best place to work. We are proud to be Great Place to Work certified, and have been recognized as one of Fortune's Best Places to Work in the Bay Area, and Best Places to Work in Finance & Insurance.

We trust our people to rise to the occasion, giving them the autonomy and support to reach higher and farther.
We travel through truth and deliver opinions with respect and care.
We find fulfillment in both our work and personal lives, because they fuel each other.
We endure in spite of all obstacles and we are tenacious in our quest to fulfill our mission.
We can show the world that you can be a PE firm that puts up strong results and treats people well. And we can show that you’re winning financially because of that philosophy, not in spite of it.
