The Mauve Maven
Founder and Managing Partner, Mauve Capital Partners

Passion. Experience. Diligence. That’s how the website describes Mauve Capital Partners, a boutique investment firm backed by more than 25 seasoned investors in the middle-market space. And those three words can also describe the company’s founder and managing partner Michael Abdella.

He brings passion to the job every day, leading investment decisions at Mauve and the management of day-to-day activities of acquired companies. He also brings experience, having more than 10 years of sales, marketing, operations and entrepreneurial knowledge under his belt. But it’s Abdella’s diligence that truly sets him apart. Not only has he earned the title of business owner at a young age, but he’s also an MBA graduate, dean-elected student marshal and past-president of the Sales and Business Marketing Association at WMU.
