Equipped with a financial background spanning 25 years and an analytical mindset, Blair Heartfield is always current on capital market trends and opportunities. She is an expert negotiator and credits her edge in tough situations to raising a household of boys.
Not only does Blair brings a wealth of investment knowledge to Mohr Capital, she is also a key member of the Mohr Family Office’s advisory board. As an organized multitasker, her responsibilities include protecting the family’s assets, managing bank relationships and engaging in private equity investments and placements of debt and equity.
Blair got her start in finance with a Bachelor of Science degree in Management and Finance from the A. B. Freeman School of Business at Tulane University. During her college years, Blair was involved with Burkenroad Reports, the first university-sponsored securities analysis program in the country.
After graduating from Tulane, Blair served as an Investment Banking Associate at Credit Suisse First Boston. As part of the firm’s Natural Resources Group, she executed and advised on mergers and acquisitions, IPOs and high-yield debt transactions for midstream oil field service companies. After Credit Suisse, Blair joined the Dallas-based start-up company GroceryWorks as Director of Finance. Blair’s first-hand operating experience at GroceryWorks eventually led her to the Dallas-based hedge fund Walker Smith Capital, where she served in various analytical and portfolio management roles for eight years.
Blair enjoys spending time with her family and friends, playing tennis and traveling to new destinations – next on the list is Africa. Even with her busy schedule, Blair still finds time to give back to others. She’s actively involved with non-profit organizations associated with her children’s schools and has volunteered with the American Red Cross. She is also a member of Tulane University’s alumni network and offers mentoring and advice to graduate and undergraduate students seeking career guidance.
