Texas Power Broker Rad Weaver from locker room to board room

Q: Name an investment that was a home run for you.

A: Probably our single best deal we’ve done is terms of dollar volume … was a company called Constellis (the U.S. military services business formerly known as Blackwater). We put together some great guys out of New York. I helped round up the necessary capital. We wrote a check here. We bought that business when it was really struggling at that time, at a point when it was probably going to go away if somebody didn’t get it and turn it around. We were able to get it turned around. We did a roll-up of the industry, bought our second and third largest competitors in that space and then had a really significant exit in September 2016 to Apollo Global Management.
