of former GE Executives at Paladin Associates helped Oak Hill Capital
design and implement and manage a very successful Portfolio
Purchasing Program. They consolidated the common purchases across our
portfolio companies and negotiated very favorable supply contracts.
The program has reduced costs for Telecommunications, Transportation,
Office Supplies and Equipment, IT Equipment, Temporary Employees,
Travel and Living expenses, and even Plastic Bags. Internal processes
as well as contract terms have also been improved. Paladin fees are
based on the results they deliver. This has been a tremendous value
creation program for us with very little up front risk."
