John C. Lorentzen

John has nearly 30 years of investing and board level experience in private companies and is a co-founder of Ashland Capital and co-chairs Ashland’s investment committee. He has been an integral part of executing and monitoring each of Ashland’s portfolio companies since Ashland’s inception in 2004. He currently sits on the Board of Directors for the following portfolio companies: Brillicast, Inc, Golden Aluminum, Mayco Industries, Texas Die Casting, and Three Rivers Energy.

John started his career as a lawyer for Winston & Strawn representing clients in connection with tax benefited financing transactions using lease, partnership and consolidated return structures. He left law to join The Deerpath Group, Inc., a boutique investment bank specializing in tax oriented financings. John progressed to Managing Director and was responsible for all tax oriented financings before departing Deerpath to return to the practice of law. While at Deerpath, John began investing in highly complex private transactions with a group of co-investors who are still in deals together from that era and who regularly source and cross invest in deals yet today.

John received a B.A. and B.S.B.A in Political Science, Economics and Management from Drake University and a J.D. from the University of Chicago.
