“A Lower Middle Market
Private Equity Fund.”


Founded in 2006, Oakcrest Capital Partners, LLC is a Washington, DC-based lower middle market private equity firm established by former U.S. Congressman J.C. Watts, Jr. along with two experienced investment professionals, Michael Bluestein and Linda Roach.

The partners specialize in making investments in manufacturing, business services, healthcare services, and many other diversified companies with enterprise values under $100 million. Oakcrest provides liquidity to shareholders of family-owned businesses, facilitates the transition of ownership to key managers, and capitalizes on growth opportunities while maintaining the legacy of the founding entrepreneurs.

A bedrock of the Oakcrest philosophy is to partner with outstanding managers to build enterprise values for the benefit of the investors and management team.
