TEAM

Anderson Capital Partners recognizes that good business is done through good people.  From the Anderson family directing the business over the past five decades to the newest associate making his or her first sale, each individual in the company works to exemplify the following traits:

  1. Drive & Enthusiasm: Jack Anderson built his first truck-stop from the ground up using his unmatched energy in his pursuit of success.  Anderson Capital Partners puts a hiring focus on individuals with a drive to succeed in whatever role they take on.
  2. Hospitality: With a background in accommodations and food-service, Anderson Capital Partners knows the importance of treating your customers, clients, guests, and partners as if they were your closest friends and family in order to build the most accommodating environment for business success.
  3. Fairness & Respect: Each person in our organization must have a sense of fairness.  While transactional business can be a cut throat endeavor, multi-generational experience has shown that continued success can only be accomplished when all parties are treated with professionalism and respect.

The following individuals lead the management team and various investment sectors while championing the Anderson Capital Partners traits to each employee, client, and prospective partner.

Chairman & Founder

Jack Anderson

Jack & his wife Ann have provided the foundation from which Anderson Capital Partners has developed over the past five decades.  After graduating from Western Michigan University where he played fullback for the Broncos football team, Jack pursued a career with Murphy Oil Corporation as a sales & operations manager. This role took him throughout the Midwest & Southern portions of the United States during the 1970’s. During that time, he & Ann started their family of five (Katie, Jeff, & Aimee) while he also served in the United States Marine Corps.

In late spring of 1976, Jack set out to develop his own line of travel centers.  By the mid 1990’s Jack’s travel center operations had gained a reputation in the industry and he successfully transacted a sale to the Pilot Corporation which completed in the early 2000’s.

Exiting the petroleum distribution and travel center industries allowed Jack to focus on additional business ventures. Throughout the 1980’s, 1990’s, and 2000’s Jack has served as the lead partner on many hotel developments including properties in the Marriott, Hilton, and IHG brands which Anderson Capital Partners still hold today.

Although Jack turned over the day-to-day operational control to his son Jeff in the early 2000’s, he is still heavily involved in current development projects. This “semi-retired” status allows Jack time to enjoy his hobbies of yachting & bike riding while also spending time with his growing family which includes five grandchildren. Jack & Ann currently reside in Naples, FL but spend summers back in their home state of Michigan where Jack can oversee his third chapter of entrepreneurship at his RV dealership in Petoskey, MI.
