John Roush

CEO, Express Wash Concepts

Rollie Bartels

CEO, Club Car Wash
"I chose to partner with Wildcat at a time when Club was ready to accelerate its growth to the next level, expanding from just 2 states to over 10 today. With Wildcat’s hands on support in building best practices and refining our strategic vision, Club has developed into one of the fastest growing car wash businesses in the nation."

Peter Klatsky

CEO, Spring Fertility
"We chose to partner with Wildcat at an inflection point in Spring’s growth, where we needed a patient and flexible partner who could also provide hands on support and strategic advice.  The Wildcat team has empowered us to build a leading national provider while focusing on generating the best outcomes for our patients, employees, and partners."

Dan Michaeli

CEO, Glia
"Wildcat has been with us from our Series A through achieving unicorn status and have been terrific partners both in good periods and in challenging circumstances – they have been an invaluable resource to us and always have the Company’s best interests in mind."

Tod Leiweke

CEO, Seattle Kraken
"From the first conversations with the NHL, to the launch of the Seattle Kraken as the 32nd NHL franchise nearly four years later, Wildcat has been an indispensable partner, advising on business strategy while providing our team with the resources and platform to build enduring relationships throughout our community."

Mariah Chase

CEO, Eloquii
"For a venture stage company, Wildcat was a uniquely interesting partner around the table – they focused us on unit economics and provided a later stage perspective that was helpful in growing an early stage business. Equally importantly, they were truly committed partners and dug in to support us at all times."
