Former Hunt Realty Investors Execs Form New Venture

Banner Oak Capital Partners President Geoff Osborn and CEO Patricia Gibson

After working together for more than 15 years, two former Hunt Realty Investments execs have struck out on their own. Patricia Gibson and Geoffrey Osborn (above) just launched Banner Oak Capital Partners

The formation of the new Dallas-based investment management company is concurrent with the sale of Hunt’s interest in the Akard Street Partners platform to the Teacher Retirement System of Texas

Patricia and Geoffrey will keep their strategy similar to Akard Street Partners and manage co-investment capital and direct investments for many product types.

Aaron Murff and Colin Neblett have been named partners. Mark McClahanan, Scott Thornton, James Leggett and Valerie Lonsdale will also join Banner Oak.

Banner Oak's name is inspired by oak trees and the drive to achieve banner performance. The firm will office at 5950 Sherry Lane in Preston Center.
