Kendall brings together a team with a very diverse experience, drawing on the strengths of careers built in the areas of private equity, real estate, corporate finance, entrepreneurship and business development. The team combines over 50 years of experience in corporate transactions, with multiple sucessful exits. Having led the sucessful autonomization from BPP, the management team was able to lead Kendall out of the financial turmoil of 2008-2012, positioning it for a new investment cycle that started in 2013.
