First introduced in 2017, the CVCA Private Capital Regional Impact Award is given annually in recognition of a member firm whose investment has positioned their portfolio company to make a meaningful mark within the community and within the broader business ecosystem. Winners of this award are committed to making investments that make an impact—whether it’s fueling job creation, engagement within the community, or hiring diverse talent. To be qualified to win the award, the member firm must have exited the investment.

Clairvest Group, Inc. a Toronto-based private equity firm that selects industries where there is an opportunity to create substantial equity value, takes the 2018 award for its investment partnership with Kitchener-based .

With the help of Clairvest over a four-and-a-half-year partnership, CRS Contractors Rental Supply added 203 jobs to the Canadian economy; an 83% increase in employment.

“CRS is a great example of the Clairvest business model,” said Mitch Green, Managing Director of Clairvest. “We partnered with a terrific group of entrepreneurial shareholders who operate the business at the highest standard of excellence.
