Vice President of Finance
Mrs. Pennington joined Mayson Capital Partners, LLC (Mayson Capital) in 2016. Mayson Capital Partners (Mayson Capital) is 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 business, an urgent healthcare business, and a technology-driven self-storage business. Several of these companies drive growth in a commercial real estate portfolio that includes additional commercial properties and developments. Mayson Capital also allocates capital to venture investments with opportunities for disrupting industries and generating 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.
Prior to joining Mayson Capital, Mrs. Pennington was employed by a dry corn ingredient manufacturer and worldwide supplier to food and beverage companies. As its Financial Manager, Pennington provided strategic direction and oversight for all accounting operations, cash flow planning, investment and asset management.

Pennington’s accounting and financial portfolio has been further diversified through high level roles held in multiple manufacturing and retail industries.
