Revelstoke co-founder Mark King dies at 56

  • King died while on vacation with his family
  • Co-founded Revelstoke in 2013 with two other former KRG execs
  • Not clear what happened to him

Mark King, the co-founder and co-managing partner of Revelstoke Capital Partners, died Wednesday while on vacation with his family, according to the firm.

King was 56. The cause of death wasn’t disclosed. Spokeswoman Amanda Isaacson declined to comment beyond a statement.

King, who lived in Denver, is survived by his wife, two children and three stepchildren.

He co-founded Revelstoke in 2013 along with Simon Bachleda and Dale Meyer. All three had worked at KRG Capital Partners. “Mark’s determination, passion and strategic vision will inspire and stay with us always,” Bachleda said in the statement.

King, born in 1960, was co-founder and managing director at KRG Capital. He attended the University of Denver, Menlo College and the University of Oklahoma, according to his biography on Revelstoke’s website.

It’s not clear whether King’s death triggered key-man provisions in the firm’s debut fund. Revelstoke closed Fund I on $303 million in 2015, reaching its hard cap.

Revelstoke will continue to be led by Bachleda and Meyer.
