Values Matter

Since inception, Nautic has worked to instill and maintain a firm-wide culture in which each professional approaches all personal interactions, both internally and externally, with humility and mutual respect. We believe that our history and unique location as a private equity firm in Providence, Rhode Island, remind us of these values. Our most important constituents are also reminded of this culture on a daily basis.

Our management partners rely on us to support their organizations, their people, and their futures. We approach all of our relationships with our management partners as just that: a partnership. We “sit on the same side of the table” as they do and roll up our sleeves whenever required to help them achieve their goals. This is the right way to do things and best serves our shared interests.

Our employees work as a team and believe that teamwork always results in better outcomes. We value a work environment that is serious yet collegial. We work hard but also expect that every Nautic employee will have a personal life outside the office that is equally fulfilling. We expect that staff will make time for their families and spend time on their personal interests. Our hope is that our employees make great contributions to our business and also to the communities in which they live.

Our business relationships rely on us to help them accomplish their own institutional goals. We honor that responsibility daily and do everything we can to meet or exceed expectations — making sure we do it the right way.
