Joe Meissner


Joe Meissner is the founder of Executive Capital Partners – a buy side M&A advisory firm that specializes in executive based deal sourcing.

Joe and his firm have been working with back-able CEOs since 1995. He is an expert at identifying great CEOs and working with them to build out an investment thesis that survives the scrutiny of corporate and PE investors.

Joe’s approach aligns nicely with Clarity. We both recognize the value of an exceptional CEO when endeavoring to cultivate proprietary deal flow for platform scale investments.

When Joe introduces an executive to Clarity – he has already completed a careful vetting process to confirm the executive’s skill set and commitment. Moving forward, Joe works collaboratively with Clarity to refine the investment thesis, develop the right investor partner, identify relevant investment opportunities, and cultivate deal flow from introduction through completed transactions.

Joe has a proven track record at matching CEOs and investors. He has completed 16 transactions using this investment model. Clarity values our strategic partnership with Joe and his firm. Some of the skills and activities that we contribute to the process overlap Joe’s contributions and we establish the optimal partnering framework on a case by case basis. As co investors in many of our transactions – all parties benefit from this flexibility and aligned interests around sourcing outstanding investments opportunities.
