POTOMAC, Md., Oct. 11, 2023 - Mauloa, an investment firm that provides non-controlling growth capital to cash flow positive companies, announced today that Todd Mohr has joined as general partner. Mr. Mohr has over 25 years of experience leading businesses, the last 10 of which he spent as President and CEO of Aerotek, America's largest staffing firm with over $7B in revenue. At Mauloa, Mr. Mohr will assist in all facets of the firm's operations, with particular emphasis on the growth strategy of the portfolio companies and deal sourcing.
Mauloa's Founding Partner, Andrew Sachs, said, "We're thrilled to welcome Todd to the Mauloa family, a leader whose unparalleled experience with a multibillion-dollar staffing company promises not only to deepen our operational prowess but to propel us to unimaginable heights. With Todd on board, the future of Mauloa is brighter than ever."
Now on its third fund, Mauloa was formerly known as Sachs Capital, which backed more than 20 founder-led or family-owned companies across a range of industries, since its inception in 2007. Some of its past investments include: The Cleaning Authority, AlphaStaff, Ducky Johnson Recovery, and, most recently, Mr. Christmas, a 90-year old home decor company. Mauloa, which is Hawaiian for "endless," makes minority investments into only cash flow positive companies and does so without any exit timetable. This approach allows existing management to stay in control and ensures that any subsequent financings or even an ultimate sale is based on what's best for the company.
Todd Mohr said, "I'm thrilled to be a part of the team at Mauloa. After exploring different opportunities, this one stood out from the rest. It was clear after speaking with Andrew that partnering with great teams and focusing on the continued development of the people is central to Mauloa. It's a natural fit coming from Aerotek, when you put people first, you win in the marketplace. Really looking forward to this exciting next chapter."
Mauloa is led by a team of senior executives with extensive experience operating, advising, and investing in businesses. The management team is chaired by Louis Mayberg, who co-founded ProShares and built it into one of the country's leading issuers of exchange-traded funds. The firm's portfolio companies are further supported by the Mauloa Advisory Board and Operator Network, whose members provide a wealth of expertise.
