Trinity Hunt Partners, a Dallas-based private equity firm, has today announced the expansion of its team by two members: George Morgan, joining as a Vice President, and Greg Hopkins, joining as an Associate.
As Vice President, George Morgan will be responsible for supporting deal sourcing, deal execution and portfolio company growth initiatives. His previous roles include positions with Harren Equity Partners, a middle-market private equity firm, where he focused on deal execution and portfolio company value creation, and at Harris Williams & Co., where he focused on mergers and acquisitions in the transportation and logistics industry. George received his B.S. magna cum laude from Washington & Lee University, and his MBA with distinction from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
“We are pleased to welcome George as another experienced professional to Trinity Hunt’s investment team,” said Dan Dross, Managing Partner at Trinity Hunt. “George's addition will further expand our firm’s sourcing, deal execution and portfolio company management capabilities.”
As an Associate, Greg Hopkins will support deal sourcing and execution, as well as portfolio company growth initiatives, including portfolio management of America’s Auto Auction and Auction Credit Enterprises, Family Help & Wellness, Lexitas, Mid America Pet Food and Veracity Research Company. Before joining Trinity Hunt, Greg was an Analyst at J.P. Morgan in the Global Consumer & Retail group, where he focused on mergers and acquisitions, initial public offerings and debt financing transactions for clients in the consumer, retail and disruptive commerce industries. Greg graduated summa cum laude from Southern Methodist University with a B.B.A. in finance and a specialization in alternative asset management.
“Greg brings additional bench strength to help us evaluate and execute new deal opportunities as well as grow our portfolio companies,” said Pete Stein, Managing Partner at Trinity Hunt.
