George Ahl leaves M3 Capital
George Ahl has left M3 Capital Partners, as one of its founding principals, in response to a strategic shift in the firm’s business strategy away from the provision of third party capital advisory services. Ahl joined M3 Capital in 1997 and had overall responsibly for the firm’s institutional capital relationships in North America. In that capacity, he has personally raised in excess of $5 billion of equity from institutional investors. Going forward, M3 will have “the vast majority of its resources” focused on its principal investment business, Evergreen, on behalf of the State of Washington. A formal announcement has not been made. Ahl says he is seeking new opportunities.
