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 an urgent care clinic and affiliated medical billing company, a general contracting firm, and a mortgage loan origination business. 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 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.

He continues to participate directly in portfolio businesses and serves as a director for several of these businesses.
