The Zabel Companies adds Associate to Investment Team

Charlotte, NC (August 21, 2023) – The Zabel Companies is pleased to welcome Paolo Dionisio to the Zabel team as an Associate, where he will focus on executing new transactions and working closely with existing portfolio companies.

Prior to joining Zabel, Paolo was an Analyst at SharpVue Capital, a private investment firm and Small Business Investment Company (SBIC) providing capital to lower middle market companies. Paolo began his career at SharpVue, where he participated in the investment of ~$100 million of debt and equity capital across multiple industries.

Born and raised in the Philippines, Paolo is a nomad who has lived in three different places before calling Charlotte home – alpine Japan, countryside Virginia, and bustling Raleigh. Through those experiences, Paolo cultivated a love for the outdoors and learning about different ways of life. In his free time, Paolo enjoys playing basketball and soccer, traveling, cooking, and hiking.

The Zabel team is thrilled to have Paolo join our growing firm.  Zabel continues to focus on expanding our portfolio of partnerships with lower middle market family and founder-owned companies seeking a patient partner focused on building businesses without a pre-defined exit horizon.
