Matrix Capital Managing Director to Retire at Year-End

Matrix Capital Markets Group announces that effective December 31, 2014, Jeffrey G. Moore, managing director, will retire from Matrix after 27 years with the firm.

Moore, who co-founded Matrix in 1988 and served as President of the firm for over 25 years, has been instrumental in guiding the growth of the company throughout its history. In a financial advisory capacity, Moore has shared his negotiating and financial experience with clients across a wide range of industries providing merger and acquisition services including exclusive sales, complex recapitalizations and management buyouts.

Moore’s plans moving forward include the creation of a family office investment company to acquire interests in smaller old economy companies. The initial focus of the investment company, which will not be affiliated with Matrix, will be to support management buyouts and management buy-ins in Virginia and contiguous states.

Moore stated, “I have had an extremely rewarding career at Matrix. Although I’m eager to begin the next stage of my career, I sincerely look forward to watching my partners and other Matrix team members continue the successful growth of the firm. I am proud to have seen our company grow to become a leading middle-market investment banking firm in the country and a premier service provider in the downstream energy, industrial, consumer, business service, and building products sectors. I have also been witness to the creation of the healthcare, lumber, and media & communication practices, as well as the opening of a dedicated Midwest office.”

Michael Morrison, president of Matrix, noted, “We at Matrix are fortunate to be able to take the baton from Jeff and the original partners whose vision and prescience saw the opportunity and, thus the creation of Matrix over 25 years ago. Much has changed since the genesis, but Matrix has remained true to its founding principle; to do great work for our clients. We all wish Jeff the best in his next chapter, but also expect him to remain a valuable resource for us as a member of the Matrix Board of Advisors. As we move forward, we are extremely excited about the robust environment we are experiencing right now and the team we have built. We are growing and continue to be a valued resource and advisor to our clients. We have a large roster of active clients and prospective deals in our pipeline and anticipate that the recent addition of several industry verticals will help propel our continued growth and expansion.”
