Tribe Equity Partners Announce their Search to Acquire their Next Small Business in Central Oregon

PublIshed on Feb 13, 2024

Tribe Equity Partners is pleased to announce their search to acquire their next small business in Central Oregon.  Tribe is not a typical holding company or private equity firm. They are two Central Oregon family men and small business owners, eager to operate their businesses for the long term.   

  • Jordan Inman — Dedicated husband and father of three lovely young children. Former Marine Corps Infantry Officer with expertise in Operational Planning. Enthusiastic about contributing to the community through small business ownership and active community engagement. 
  • James Maxwell — Former Marine Corps and Navy Officer, with a background in logistics, and then in Special Operations. James and his wife have two children and are passionate about raising them in the Central Oregon outdoors.    

Tribe is generally seeking a business with a long track record here in Central Oregon, and an owner ready for a new chapter in life. Jordan and James are not just looking for a financial investment but are eager to roll their sleeves up and get involved in daily operations as the new owners. 

“We love businesses that make up the ‘fabric’ of our community here. That’s what we are searching for in our next acquisition. These are the companies that maybe don’t make the headlines but keep our Central Oregon economy going and provide incomes to our residents”, explained James. “We are also honored to give the owners of these great businesses the opportunity to retire, knowing that what they’ve built is in trusted hands for years to come.” 

Jordan added, “Upon leaving the military, we explored the country to find the ideal environment to raise our growing family. Upon arriving in Bend, we witnessed children riding bikes and a community centered around family values. Now settled in Central Oregon, we are keen to actively participate in the community through small business ownership. We firmly believe that the essence of this wonderful place we now call home lies in the small businesses that contribute to and support the community.”  


About Tribe Equity Partners  

“Tribe” is Jordan and James’ new chapter after long careers in the military. Since settling in Central Oregon, they acquired their first small business together in 2021. This experience allowed them to continue their passion for leading small teams, something they longed for after their military service. Armed with a new sense of purpose, they formed Tribe Equity Partners to continue acquiring and leading Central Oregon businesses for the decades to come, with an added focus on hiring and developing transitioning veterans.
