Pacific Lake Partners
Pacific Lake Partners is a private equity fund focused on small cap buyouts exclusively through the search fund model. Search fund investing consists of providing search and acquisition capital to promising entrepreneurs whose intent is to acquire a small, established company with revenues of $10 million to $30 million and a history of profits and growth. Pacific Lake Partners was founded by Jim Southern and Coley Andrews. Mr. Southern was himself a beneficiary of search fund investors early in his career, resulting in the acquisition of Uniform Printing, a $43 million printer of specialty insurance documents. Since that time, in addition to acquiring two additional businesses via the search fund model, he has personally invested in over 45 search funds and acquisitions sourced and managed by search fund entrepreneurs. Since co-founding Pacific Lake, Mr. Andrews has been involved with over 30 search funds and currently is either a director or visitor on the board of six search fund operating companies.
