Director - Investments and Operations, Entourage Effect Capital Partners
Joe Blasetti joined Entourage Effect Capital Partners (“EEC”) in late 2019 after a 22-year career in the corporate and leveraged lending space with both Wells Fargo (14 years) and JPMorgan (8 years). Throughout his lending career, Joe held roles in audit, portfolio management, underwriting, and business development. He called on and worked with management teams, private equity groups, intermediaries, referral sources, and other lenders in providing various complex loan structures for refinances, growth capital, mergers & acquisitions, turn-arounds, and dividend re-caps. Joe’s understanding of distressed lending and his ability to build relationships, in addition to having a command of secured and cash flow lending, make him a natural for aiding EEC through the entire transaction process.
Joe’s involvement at EEC covers the entire investment process, portfolio management, and working with portfolio companies to maximize operations and financial performance.
Joe graduated from the University of Miami with a B.S. in Entrepreneurship and currently lives in South Florida with his wife, two boys, and way too many pets. When not working, Joe can be found fishing, golfing, or spending time with his family.
