President & CEO
Mr. Maurer co-founded Mayson Capital Partners (Mayson Capital) as a private investment firm based in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Mayson Capital’s core investments include convenience stores, restaurants, hotels and a community bank. Other operating companies include a general contracting company, a self-storage business and an urgent care clinic with affiliated medical billing company. Several of these businesses drive growth in a commercial real estate portfolio that includes additional commercial properties and developments. Mayson Capital also allocates capital to technology and venture investments with opportunity for significant growth.
Mayson Capital leads investments with its own capital. Additional funds are raised from a network of high net-worth individuals on a deal-by-deal basis. This approach allows flexibility with deal structures and tends to yield more patient capital while portfolio businesses carry out their business plans.
