The Hoffmann Family of Companies, a multi-vertical family-owned company consisting of over 100 brands, has hired St. Louis native Clayton Jones as their new Executive Vice-President of Corporate Development to work with acquisitions and post-purchase integrations into the family of companies from their St. Louis-based office.
Prior to joining The Hoffmann Family of Companies, Clayton was a Sloan Fellow at MIT, a partner in a private equity firm, and was involved in the diligence group of a Big 4 Accounting and Consulting firm. He has taken on top executive and finance roles in several companies where he drove professionalization, scalability, and spurred multi-million-dollar EBITDA expansion. As a consultant, CPA, and CFA, Clayton developed strong analytical and financial modeling skills serving industries such as healthcare, manufacturing, services, and software, in PE and Venture-backed companies. As a portfolio manager, Clayton sourced, diligenced, and closed dozens of investments, devised strategic plans for existing and start-up businesses, and negotiated critical contracts with suppliers and customers.
“I’m thrilled to join the Hoffmann Family of Companies as it continues to grow and gain momentum; the Company’s long-term focus on the businesses that it invests in is really showing through with great results, and it makes me happy to be a part of the regional growth and economic development that it drives.”
