What is Caretta?

“Caretta” is the Latin name for loggerhead sea turtles, which have an inner navigation system that allow them to return to the location where they first began, even after many years and having traveled many thousands of miles. Check them out here. We think they’re pretty impressive creatures!

Like the loggerhead, we’ve also gone back to our roots. Prior to Caretta, Eric Becker and his partners founded Sterling Partners, a middle market private equity firm that over its 30 year history raised about $6bn, 8 funds and invested in over 100 companies. Caretta focuses where Eric began his career — supporting the growth of differentiated small to medium-sized businesses with patient, flexible and value-added capital.
