NewRoad Capital’s commitment to “Doing What’s Right” immediately resonated with my own personal beliefs and commitments.  In this particular commitment we have all committed to “Treat others as you want to be treated.  Empower our people to make a difference, do our best every day and operate on a foundation of ethical behavior”. In my time as an Operating Partner with NewRoad I have witnessed first hand that these are not just words on our website.  We are all committed to our corporate values and share and apply them to the companies we have the privilege of doing  business with.
