Huron Capital Partners Celebrates 25th Anniversary of Building Premier Companies in Partnership with Leading Executives

Team celebrates quarter-century of success and looks forward to continuing its leadership into the next decade

DETROIT – Huron Capital Partners, LLC (“Huron”), a leading lower middle-market private equity firm, is proud to announce its 25th anniversary. Founded in Detroit in 1999, Huron has acquired more than 275 companies through six control investment funds over the past 25 years, managing over $2 billion in capital on behalf of a diversified global investor base, including public and private pension funds, insurance companies, endowments, foundations, consultants and family offices.

Throughout the last quarter-century, Huron Founding Partners Brian Demkowicz, Pete Mogk, and Mike Beauregard have built a leading PE franchise in the lower-middle-market, led by an outstanding investment team that has successfully invested across multiple market cycles.  In recognition of its achievements, during the past year Huron has been recognized as one of the top Founder-Friendly Investors by Inc. Magazine and ranked as one of the top 50 investment firms by Bauer Rock Media Group / Grady Campbell. 

“I am extremely proud of our team and persistent success over the past 25 years as our sector experience and resources have deepened. Since inception, we have been passionate about partnering with exceptional management teams to build premier businesses with the goal of delivering attractive risk-adjusted returns,” said Brian Demkowicz, Chairman and Founding Partner at Huron.  “We are deeply honored by the strong support of our long-standing investors over these 25 years and appreciative of the confidence they have entrusted in us.  Above all, we are grateful for our exceptional investment staff, management teams and Operating Partners that provide the foundation for strong value creation within our portfolio companies.”

As part of its succession strategy in 2021, Huron began the process of elevating its current leadership team as part of a multi-year plan designed to provide a strong foundation for continued success.  Huron is currently led by Managing Partner Jim Mahoney who has led numerous successful investments for the firm since 2007 and served on over a dozen Huron portfolio company boards. The Founding Partners are active on Huron’s investment committees and remain deeply committed to maximizing equity value for Huron’s investors.  The team manages several active flagship funds as well as our critical services strategy, which combines our successful buy-and-build ExecFactor® approach with our demonstrated historical track record of investing in businesses providing mission-critical services in the facility, infrastructure, and residential services sectors where we have deep experience, established playbooks, and a long history of partnering with exceptional CEOs to build premier companies in the services industry.  We believe our sector-focused approach will strengthen our ability to capitalize on current secular tailwinds and further position us for continued success in our core markets.   

“I believe Huron’s senior leadership team is well-positioned to deliver strong returns and build upon our successful legacy as we pursue our next phase of growth and prosperity,” said Huron Managing Partner Jim Mahoney. “Our success continues to be driven by our focus on two of our long-standing core tenets: ExecFactor® programs and mission-critical services sector expertise, and our deal pipeline is strong in these core areas.”
