In his fifteen years at Archer Capital, one of Australia’s leading private equity firms, Minton as a Managing Partner, co-led its growth from less than $100 million to over $3 billion in Funds Under Management at the time of his retirement from the firm in 2015.
Archer is now one of Australia’s largest private equity firms, with investments in industries as diverse as V8 Supercars, restaurants, private healthcare, agriculture, retail, technology and mining services. In the period Minton has co-led Archer Capital, it has generated investment results of a compound rate of return of 34% and a 2.9x money multiple on its investments consistently over the past 15 years.
Growing up in in regional Queensland, Minton was the recipient of a Queensland Alumina scholarship, which enabled him to study engineering at The University of Queensland before going on to complete his MBA at the prestigious International Institute for Management Development (IMD) in Switzerland.
He has held numerous leadership positions within the industrial sector, including General Manager of CSR Humes for Australasia, and in the management consulting industry with McKinsey & Company in Australia, Scandinavia and London.
While pursuing this successful career, Minton has also made the time to mentor others, particularly in his beloved code of rugby league in preparing athletes for life after the end of their professional football careers. Having played rugby league at a semi-professional level, captaining the Capras and Souths in Queensland in the 1980’s, Minton knows the even greater challenges in making the transition for professional footballers today.
Minton has retired young to focus on his health, but continues to inspire and assist others in any way he can be it funding, networking, or mentoring.
