Minneapolis-based Vermilion Group (Vermilion) is the private equity investment office of the Mortenson family. The Mortenson family built M.A. Mortenson Companies, Inc. into a highly diversified family-owned and community-oriented construction organization. Vermilion pursues private equity investments in well-positioned privately held and/or founder-owned lower middle market companies with a lens on impact investing and value creation. Vermilion follows a patient long-term capital approach and pursues control and minority investments across growth, recapitalization and buyout strategies.
Following a successful search for Principal of Vermilion, Doran Leadership Partners was re-engaged to seek talent to help execute Vermilion’s investments in family-run and founder-led businesses and partner with the management teams of portfolio companies. This nationwide search was led by Maya Schultz and project managed by Mary Abiadal.
Prior to joining Vermilion, Vikram was in Corporate Development at Chicago-based Fortune Brands. His prior experience includes Amcor (Corporate Development), Robert W. Baird & Co. (Investment Banking) and Accenture (Management Consulting). Vikram’s proven experience in business development, deal execution and portfolio management, coupled with his cooperative and positive demeanor, will be valued assets as Vermilion builds the portfolio and the firm. Vikram and his family have relocated to Minneapolis.
Congratulations to Vikram and Vermilion Group!
