Pioneer Capital was established by J. Peter Pierce in September 2000 as a family office to manage investments on behalf of the Pierce family, following the merger of Pierce Leahy Corporation (NYSE "PLH") and Iron Mountain (NYSE “IRM”). This merger created the world’s largest international records and information management company.
While Pioneer has diversified its investments over the years, the team continues to be actively involved in the records and information management industry. Pioneer founded Retrievex in 2007 together with Welsh Carson Anderson and Stowe, a $7 billion private equity firm specializing in business services, to pursue ongoing consolidation in the highly fragmented records and information management industry.
After selling Retrievex to Access Information Management and their private equity partner, Peter, together with his long-term colleague and industry veteran Joe Nezi, started Pioneer’s Merger & Acquisition Advisory and Management Consulting business. This business primarily advises owners in the records and information management industry who are considering or interested in selling their companies. When compared to other advisors in the records and information management industry, Pioneer believes its team’s extensive experience as owners and operators, who have helped shape the industry over the last 45 years, is truly unique. Additionally the team has successfully completed mergers and acquisitions valued at over $1.5 billion within the records and information management industry.
The Pioneer team’s collective experience is unmatched and provides a unique perspective and advantage when it comes to offering Mergers & Acquisition Sell-Side representation and Management Consulting Services to owners in the records and information management industry.
