Jeff Maurer

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, hotels, and a commercial real estate portfolio.  Other investments include a community bank, a general contracting business, restaurants, and a technology-driven self-storage business.  Mayson Capital also allocates capital to venture investments with opportunities for disrupting industries and generating significant growth.
