Seaport Capital, a New York-based private equity firm, announced today that Andrew J. Meyers has rejoined the firm as a Partner, effective May 1.
His prior tenure with Seaport spanned the period from 2001 to 2007. Alongside Bill Luby, Jim Collis, Scott McCormack and Bob Tamashunas, Drew will assist in leading the firm’s investment strategy and overseeing the firm’s investment portfolio. Seaport Capital is currently investing from Seaport Capital Partners V, a $230 million fund complex that had a final close in August 2017.
Bill Luby, one of Seaport’s Founders, said, “We are excited to welcome Drew back to the Seaport team. His understanding of our approach to investing and the firm’s culture, coupled with an extensive track record, complements our existing team well. Scott, Bob, Jim and I have all known Drew for at least 15 years and believe his rejoining the firm is additive to the outstanding investment team in place today.”
“Drew is an experienced private equity partner with considerable business and investment expertise who has stayed close to Seaport professionally and personally over the years. We saw a unique opportunity to bring on a senior investment professional whom we all respect and who could be immediately productive in our efforts to deploy Fund V in opportunities that fit the criteria we promised to our LPs”, said Scott McCormack, one of Seaport’s partners. “He also brings an extensive range of relationships that will enhance our deal flow and overall firm visibility in the lower middle market.”
Mr. Meyers said, “It is truly an honor to rejoin the team at Seaport Capital, whom I have known for many years. Their excellent track record and patient approach to investing is uniquely suited to the lower middle market and the companies with which they partner. I am excited to help continue the work of investing our partners’ capital in the most attractive opportunities possible and building an enduring firm.”
Mr. Meyers is a seasoned private equity executive with over 15 years of experience. Before rejoining Seaport Capital, he spent nearly five years with Gryphon Investors, a top performing middle market private equity fund currently managing over $1 billion in private equity investments. Prior to Gryphon, he was a partner at GroupArgent (now known as Results International Group LLP), helping to lead that firm’s principal investing efforts.
