About Us

In 2006, Falfurrias Capital Partners was founded by Hugh McColl, Marc Oken, and Ed McMahan with the objective of partnering with proven management teams to build world class middle market businesses. Since then, the founders and partners have raised close to $1 billion across the firm’s four funds.

The Falfurrias Capital team includes partners who have successfully built and led multi-billion enterprise value and middle market companies as well as companies in their start-up and growth phases. They are subject matter experts in sales & marketing strategy, technology, acquisitions, and finance & accounting. The FCP team is task oriented to help our portfolio companies manage and execute strategic initiatives that are often unfamiliar, costly, or inaccessible to middle market businesses. The Falfurrias team allows management teams to lead their companies while we provide guidance and serve as trusted advisors.

Falfurrias Capital employs a proprietary, theme-based approach called Industry First.  This approach allows us to identify markets where we can most effectively leverage our resources and relationships. We invest in companies with EBITDA from $5 million to $40 million, across a range of sectors detailed on our Active Industry First Campaign page.  We typically invest a minimum of $25 million but can make equity investments up to $200 million with low leverage.  We also look for add-on investments for our active portfolio companies.  Add-on investments typically range from $5 million to $100 million in enterprise value.
