Lead Left Interview – Michael J. Hall

This week we speak with Michael J. Hall, managing partner at Yukon Capital Partners. Yukon provides mezzanine capital to middle market businesses with a focus on deals controlled by private equity sponsors.

The Lead Left: Mike, how long has Yukon been around?

Mike Hall: In February, 2008, Bill Dietz and I left Norwest Mezzanine to start Yukon. But we’ve both been doing this a long time.

TLL: Define “a long time.”

MH: Well, just to put it all in context, the first mezzanine funds were created separately in the late 1980’s by Churchill Capital and Rice Capital.
