Jason Reading


Jason founded Aries Capital Partners with Rick Durham and Andy Dent in 2007 to focus on helping entrepreneurs and their businesses grow, unconstrained by the limitations of a fund. He has led investments from consumer products to services and includes structures ranging from roll-ups, minority/majority investments, management-led buyouts and growth capital.

Previous to Aries, Jason held positions at Peterson Partners, a private equity fund; Leucadia National, a publicly-held investor in distressed assets; Merrill Lynch, in their investment banking group; and Price Waterhouse, with their Audit and Business Advisory Services group.

Jason earned an MBA from Harvard Business School and a Bachelor of Science from Brigham Young University. He was a major in the Army National Guard, and served a one-year tour of duty in Baghdad as a company commander.
