Our Team


AUA Private Equity is comprised of a cohesive team of investment and operating professionals with strong reputations as successful investors, operators, and entrepreneurs.

Our investment team is complemented by an operating executive board comprised of former senior industry executives who assist with deal origination, industry and business due diligence, and functional corporate oversight.
