LaSalle Capital Our Story
Since 2004, LaSalle Capital has partnered with over 40 companies in the lower middle market to drive growth and create value. We utilize a strategic and collaborative approach that respects the knowledge of those who have built the businesses we acquire and leverages our industry expertise and successful formula for growing and developing small businesses. LaSalle’s co-founders, Jeff Walters and Rocco Martino, have been investing in the lower middle market since the mid-1980s and our firm is built on the foundation of their investment experience.

The LaSalle Capital team has grown over the years, as Jeff and Rocco have been joined by other professionals who share their passion for building strong businesses in the lower middle market. We have also deepened our industry expertise in food and beverage and business services and are uniquely positioned to create value for companies in these industries. We currently manage two funds totaling over $345 million in committed capital.

We approach each investment with a strategy for growing and enhancing the operations of companies we acquire, thereby creating value for owners and management teams. We understand the unique needs of entrepreneur and family-owned businesses and how best to structure transactions that work for all parties. We strive to partner with exceptional management teams who have a passion for their business, and who seek additional capital and expertise to fully realize their business goals.
