George Allen - Founder
Most recently, George Allen was President of Acreage Holdings, a cannabis multi-state operator. Mr. Allen joined Acreage’s predecessor company in 2017 and lead the transition from a 5-employee investment vehicle into a vertically integrated company with centralized operations.
During his tenure Mr. Allen was responsible for multiple financing rounds, a complex roll-up, dozens of acquisitions, executive recruiting and an initial public offering. At the time of the announced sale in April of 2019, Acreage was the largest multi-state operators with the broadest footprint in the United States.
Immediately prior, George Allen was previously Chief Investment Officer of Cambridge Information Group (CIG) a large family office with a focus on digital content. At CIG, George managed a portfolio of private and public direct investments as well as a collection of indirect investments. He also recruited and trained a team to build an internally managed hedge fund focused on global growth equities.
From 2011 to 2014 Mr. Allen led an acquisition-driven restructuring of Blucora (NASDAQ: BCOR) into a leading provider of wealth management and tax software. The transition utilized the predecessor company’s tax assets and unlocked tremendous value for shareholders.
Prior to Blucora, Mr. Allen spent nine years at Warburg Pincus, managing investments in the communication, media and technology sectors, and Goldman Sachs in New York and Hong Kong, where he invested capital in distressed securities.
Mr. Allen holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Yale University and lives in Rhinebeck NY.
