Building World-Class Business Services Companies

The Staley Capital team targets high-growth tech-enabled business services and software companies that offer compelling, demonstrable and innovative value propositions in vertical markets in which growth can be further accelerated by institutionalizing sales and marketing. Through our investments, we typically endeavor to grow companies with recurring, long-term customer relationships, differentiating themselves with the application of technology and delivering a "better/faster/cheaper" B2B solution.

Our senior partners have been partners in 10 different private equity funds, investing nearly $700MM of capital in 43 deals over the past 25 years. The breadth and depth of our experience allows us to be high value added partners for each and every investment.

We generally make $5-$19MM growth equity and buy-out investments. We seek to create value by collaborating with executives and exchanging views on key trade-offs and priorities. This allows us to maximize the value we add from being trusted advisors, analytical problem solvers and sources of executive talent and client leads.

Management Perspectives

"I really trust Jeff Hurst...he picks winners and he knows how to support growth. He was able to get us together and sign up one of our most important accounts. Jeff is someone who can add strategic value on top of just making an investment."

Rob Weisberg

"Renny Smith and Philip Riese were instrumental in Parago's success. Whether I simply needed a sounding board or I was seeking their guidance on key strategic decisions, I knew their involvement would make a significant difference."

Juli Spottiswood
Parago, Inc.

"I have seen how this team knows marketing services. They also understand how to create value and how to empower management teams. Strategically, we were better off because of their contributions. I viewed them as my business partners - not just a source of capital."

Pat O'Rahilly
Aspen Marketing Services

"Jeff Hurst's expertise in scaling sales and marketing has been really helpful to us. He has been stalwart and strong in his support through all types of market cycles."

"There aren't many investors out there who do what Staley does in the field of retail and retail services. Staley really stood out and we were able to get into a much more sophisticated conversation much faster than with other investors."
