Bennett Group Partners with Hero Partners

Information from Press Release

January 17, 2014

Salt Lake City — Bennett Group, a business and government consultancy chaired by former U.S. Senator Bob Bennett has become a partner in Hero Partners.

“At Hero Partners our mission is to develop great entrepreneurs who will build transformational companies,” said Hero Partners Chairman Robert Ryan. “Bob Bennett has been committed to this same vision his entire career, from his days as an entrepreneur and CEO, to his Senate career where he was a consistent champion of government policies that enhance, rather than hinder the business environment.”

Prior to his time in the Senate, Bennett was the founding CEO of Franklin Quest (later Franklin Covey), where he grew the company from four employees to more than 1,000 and a listing on the New York Stock Exchange.

“Entrepreneurship is the backbone of America’s economic strength and vitality,” Bennett said. “Since leaving the US Senate, I have found that helping young business leaders be successful is one of the truly meaningful ways that I can make a difference.”

Hero Partners works with entrepreneurs who its executives believe have the core competencies to build transformative companies. Hero Partners is selective about the companies it works with. “We help companies identify their unique strengths and competitive advantages and then we deploy our resources – our expertise and our network of high level contacts – to greatly accelerate the growth of a company,” said Justin Hyde, co-CEO. “Combining the Hero Partners and Bennett competencies and networks will greatly enhance that competitive advantage.”

Bennett Group was founded in 2011 by Bennett, John Baird and Greg Hopkins. Hopkins said that the new relationship with Hero Partners will enable Bennett Group to better serve its current clients as well as Hero Partners’ clients.
