Riata Capital Group, a Dallas-based private equity investment firm focused on sponsoring investments in privately held companies in the consumer, energy, healthcare and business & industrial services sectors, has opened its doors for business.

Riata is led by Jeff Fronterhouse, Co-Founder and Co-Chief Executive Officer of Brazos Private Equity Partners, LLC (Brazos), and Barron Fletcher, Founder and Managing Partner of Parallel Investment Partners (Parallel). 

Fronterhouse says: "Barron and I have a long history going back over twenty-five years and have been socialising the concept of combining our experience, skill sets, and network of relationships for many years. We have both been in the industry for over two decades and share very similar views on the private equity business, investing, and the value of relationships. We look forward to building Riata into a leading firm in our industry."

Fletcher says: "We are very excited about the launch of Riata, an investment platform that brings together strong capabilities in the private equity business. Our team's deep investment and operations experience, together with our historical success in building market-leading companies, provides a compelling and differentiated value proposition for both business owners and our investors. Jeff and I share a passion for investing and look to build Riata into a market leader."
