Please Introduce Yourself

Peter Badal, principal of Three Pillars Capital - a small investment fund looking to acquire and operate one small U.S.-based company with $5 to $50 million in revenue. Please see here: www.threepillarscap.com. If we find and acquire a business through your introduction, I'll reward you!

What is your work and why are you passionate about it?

My work is primarily focused on identifying industries that are interesting and meet our investment criteria, then contacting owners to see if they're interested in having a conversation about selling their business. This is my first job where I am entirely responsible for managing my own time and "work product", so all the success and failure is dependent on my ability to identify opportunities and selectively pursue those opportunities.

What have you most enjoyed about being a part of the 818 community?

Friday breakfast when Dan isn't cooking. There's a good group of people here, and they try to be helpful in their own ways where and when they can.

If you could meet any historical figure, who would you choose and why?

Jesus - because I can't think of anyone else worthy of my time or curiosity.
