Our Story

Prior to Magellan, Brett Cravatt and Jason Cohen founded, developed, and scaled one of the nation’s leading technology-enabled customer acquisition businesses, Centerfield. Cravatt and Cohen grew Centerfield from inception to over 2,500 global employees, $550mm+ of revenue and upwards of $150mm per annum in EBITDA.

Why Magellan

Magellan’s founders have raised over $2b in debt and equity capital during their careers, enduring every high and low possible throughout an entrepreneur’s journey. We bring a founder / owner first mentality to investing, an understanding of building for scale, and a blueprint to prepare for an exit to Private Equity or a strategic acquirer. We do this with a purposeful approach to maximizing the end outcome for all stakeholders.

Competitive Edge

The foundation / competitive moat for Magellan is its founders experience developing large scale digital transformation programs, leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning. Magellan’s principals have overseen the deployment of over $1.5b in digital ad spend and created technology platforms that have processed over 75 billion online consumer engagements. Our lived experience coupled with our unmatched digital transformation / customer acquisition capabilities brings a unique breed of operational excellence to Magellan’s investments.
