Salt Investment Partners is a private investment firm headquartered in Houston, TX.

We invest capital in lower middle-market companies principally located in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and the Gulf Coast. We seek niche opportunities and focus primarily in industries where we have experience - light manufacturing, financial services, and industrial services. We are not a typical private equity firm and have the flexibility to hold investments beyond the typical 3-­5 year target horizon.

Most weekends, he can be found at a ballpark, either watching his boys play, or taking them to watch high school, college, and professional games. When not at a ballpark, he can be found watching his beloved Texas Longhorns from the comfort of his back porch. While Jason was raised in the mountains of Colorado, since living on the gulf coast (and marrying a Cajun), he has learned to boil a mean pot of crawfish!
