History

Founded in 2014, the firm's partners trace a professional history together that goes back over 22 years. The team worked side by side for a long period of time at Lehman Brothers before transitioning to lead M&A and strategy at two of the country's largest healthcare service companies. Throughout that time, they have built C-Suite relationships with many of Corporate America's most successful healthcare organizations. The fund made its initial investment in ScribeAmerica within 60 days of formation.

Collectively the team has worked with hundreds of Healthcare companies and developed lasting relationships with industry executives and luminaries, which serve as the foundation for our deal-sourcing strategy.

Our experience highlights that these macro changes tend to create significant opportunities to create future value.
