Mr. Maurer co-founded Mayson Capital Partners, LLC (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. Growth platform investments also include urgent care clinics and an on-demand transportation network system. Several of these businesses drive growth in a commercial real estate portfolio that includes additional commercial properties and developments. Mayson Capital also allocates significant resources to start-ups, technology and venture investments with opportunity for explosive growth.
Mayson Capital always 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.
Prior to founding Mayson Capital, Mr. Maurer held executive management positions with PAJCO, Inc. PAJCO operates the Rhodes 101 Stop chain of convenience stores in southeast Missouri and southern Illinois. Mr. Maurer led project teams on several commercial real estate developments in southeast Missouri including the Marquette Tech District, Cape West Crossings and Sikeston Point. He continues to participate directly in portfolio businesses and serves as a director for several of these businesses.
