acquirers of contractor services businesses



River Sea Network is an acquirer with committed capital to purchase contractor services businesses across the country.

We have flexible capital, allowing us to both work with owners who want to continue to operate their business after a transaction in addition to owners who want to transition away from their business or retire. Following a transaction, we provide capital investment, strategic resources and human capital to help companies achieve their full potential. We are team players who believe that a culture of collaboration, shared ownership and aligned incentives create long-term success for all stakeholders. Our vision is to create a scaled platform of residential contractor services businesses throughout the United States.


While we are flexible in structuring, in most of our acquisitions, we seek a majority ownership interest with the seller retaining a minority interest. This allows for a true partnership based on an alignment of goals and incentives. The minority partner is often the current owner who retains some ownership with a built-in exit strategy that allows them to monetize ownership over time.


We allow operators to focus on serving customers, unburdened by the demands of running the commercial side of the business. We work closely with owners and staff to create a strong infrastructure and culture to manage all non-client facing functions. We draw on our own commercial expertise, along with a network of other experts and resources, to help our businesses grow.

Our strategy calls for multiple businesses and owners to work together in the same geography. This allows for collaboration within the group from a management and best-practices standpoint. Our network allows owners to share resources for the benefit of the group.


  • We are team players dedicated to a culture of partnership and shared success for all stakeholders
  • We know what we don’t know and expect any changes to the business will be made collaboratively
  • We don’t sacrifice our core values of excellence, integrity and stewardship
  • We are focused on growth, not cutting costs
  • We back each company we invest in and support our partners with significant time and resources
