Wellspring Capital Management is an American private equity firm focused on leveraged buyout investments in middle-market companies across a range of industries.

The firm, which is based in New York City, was founded in 1995 by Martin Davis and Greg Feldman. Davis (1927-1999) was best known for his role in restructuring Gulf and Western Industries into Paramount Communications.[1] The firm has raised approximately $2.2 billion since inception across four funds. Wellspring completed fundraising on its fourth fund in 2005 with $1.0 billion of investor commitments[2] as a successor to its $665 million 2003 Fund III.[3] The current CEO of Wellspring is William F. Dawson, Jr.[4]

Among the firm's most notable investments are: Performance Food Group,[5][6] Lionel, Dave & Buster's[7] and Checkers.


The firm is not related to a Florida firm, Wellspring Capital, that was implicated in a ponzi scheme in 2004.[8]
