Adam B. Dolder

Co-Founder & Managing Director

When I consider my long career in private equity – more than 22 years – I realize that what connects my various experiences is my passion for building things (as a boy, my favorite toys were Legos, Lincoln Logs and Erector sets!) and working closely with people in a team-oriented manner (I played all sorts of team sports, including football at Wake Forest University). The intersection of my enthusiasm of working in teamwork to build great businesses has been the driving force behind the successful partnerships I have formed with the numerous healthcare entrepreneurs with whom I’ve worked.

My deep interest in the healthcare space is both professional and personal (my wife is a physician). I find the advancements of medicine and science to be fascinating; working in this industry is stimulating every day and quenches my intellectual curiosity. The opportunity to nurture and grow businesses in the healthcare industry allows us to do well and do good at the same time.

My love of working with healthcare entrepreneurs led me to found 3 Boomerang Capital with my long-time friend and industry colleague Adam Elberg. To our enterprise, I’ve brought my experience leading investments in and serving as a board member for a number of healthcare companies, including: Softbox, Professional Physical Therapy, SteriPack, Mediatech, Citra Health Solutions, Caprion Proteomics, Autism Learning Partners, Spine & Sport Physical Therapy, Velentium, American Medical Staffing, DJO, Biotronic, Medquest, and Connecture.

My prior experiences as Head/ Co-Head of the Private Equity business at Great Point Partners and of honing my skill in investing in small- and medium-sized growth businesses while at JPMorgan Partners, a private equity firm that managed over $12 billion, were amazing platforms from which to launch 3 Boomerang Capital.

I began my career in the M&A group at JPMorgan. After that introduction to the financial services industry, I went to the Harvard Business School, where I earned my MBA. My undergraduate years were incredibly important and formative in my life, and I have remained involved with my alma mater, Wake Forest, where I was an Academic All-American student-athlete (football) and graduated cum laude with a B.S. in Business. I have remained committed to the university, having served on the Deacon Club Board, Alumni Council, Young Alumni Development Board and Calloway Executive Committee; currently I am a member of Wake Forest’s council on Pre-Wall Street Development.

Continuing my commitment for helping people and being involved in my local community, I currently serve on the Board of Trustees of the Brunswick School and am proud to serve on the Board’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee.
