DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Blue Marlin Partners is pleased to announce the opening of Blue Marlin Southwest in Dallas, Texas.

“Expanding the Blue Marlin footprint west of the Mississippi, considering our current portfolio and interest from an expanded investor base, was an easy decision,” said Peter Kirsch, Blue Marlin’s Founder and Managing Partner.
Blue Marlin Southwest will duplicate the Blue Marlin Capital Partners model founded in Washington, D.C., five years ago.

With eight General Partners, all successful high net worth operators (past and current) with a wide range of experience, this model provides Blue Marlin with diverse deal flow, capital, and specific industry expertise critical to its private equity model and success.

Blue Marlin has launched the Dallas office with a number of General Partners and will add additional partners in the southwest region. Christian Delzell, a native of Dallas, TX and SMU undergrad and MBA graduate, will lead the Dallas office.
Blue Marlin currently holds investments in a number of lower, middle market portfolio companies and hopes to make its first acquisition through Blue Marlin Southwest in 2020.

Blue Marlin Partners facilitates and manages proprietary investments on behalf of a select group of families and high net worth individuals (partners) into private deals without the fees and high infrastructure costs associated with traditional private equity funds.
