About Succession Capital Partners

Succession specializes in providing liquidity for family-owned businesses and unique and creative solutions necessary for the smooth transition and the continued success of your business.

Since 1998, the principals of Succession have successfully invested in more than 30 family-owned companies across a vast array of industries in the Southeast. Our team has a singular focus on working with and acquiring family-owned businesses. Succession Capital was created to assist with the “succession” of businesses from family control to institutional ownership. Our deep understanding of family-owned business and the unique aspects of those businesses have enabled us to be successful over time and deliver significant returns for our investors.

Since all of our principals are true operators and not financial engineers, we understand the unique challenges that small, family business owners encounter. We have extensive knowledge and experience operating and growing companies, and offer our management teams substantial strategic, financial and operating support.


Serving The Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern United States

When considering an exit strategy from my business, I had two towering concerns, my employees and my former customers. Matt made it clear from the beginning that he would take care of both of them by building on my efforts of 32 years and infusing the much needed capital to unleash the full potential of my unique brand and growing it to a level that I never thought possible. I could not be happier with my decision to work with Matt and his team to help move me to the next chapter in my life.
