Align Capital Partners (“ACP”) announced the addition of two new team members to its Dallas office. ACP, a growth-oriented private equity firm that targets control investments in lower middle market companies, closed its $325 million inaugural private equity investment fund in 2016.  Today, ACP has two portfolio companies and is actively looking for additional B2B focused investment opportunities.

Joining ACP’s Dallas office are Matt Iodice, Vice President and Maseel Mir, Director of Finance and Chief Compliance Officer.  With these new hires, the team at Align Capital Partners now totals 12 individuals.

Matt Iodice, Vice President, joined ACP upon graduating from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management.  Prior to business school, Matt spent three years at Saw Mill Capital, a middle market private equity firm that acquires manufacturing, industrial services, and specialty distribution businesses. While at Saw Mill, Matt identified and executed new investment opportunities, performed transactional due diligence, and partnered with senior management teams to develop, implement, and monitor strategic growth initiatives.  Prior to his tenure at Saw Mill, Matt was an investment banker at Harris Williams & Co. Matt earned a B.B.A. in Finance, Investment and Banking from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Maseel Mir, Director of Finance and Chief Compliance Officer, joined ACP from TPG Capital where he spent over three years in the Business Unit Finance group. During his tenure at TPG, Maseel worked on the Capital and Growth platforms where he coordinated with deal teams, legal, tax, and other departments to expeditiously close transactions. Maseel was also responsible for managing the accounting of multi-billion dollar funds at TPG.  Prior to joining TPG, Maseel was an Associate Director at Point 72 Asset Management (formerly known as SAC Capital).  Earlier in his career, Maseel also worked at the Royal Bank of Scotland and KPMG.  Maseel is a Certified Public Accountant and has earned a B.B.A. and a Master of Science in Accounting, both from James Madison University.

“We are thrilled to have Matt and Maseel join the Align Capital Partners team.  They both bring very relevant experience to our platform and have already begun making their mark at ACP,” said Dallas-based Managing Partner and Co-Founder Rob Langley.
