Pete Ochs

Pete is the founder of Capital III, an impact investing enterprise focused on creating economic, social, and spiritual capital in private companies. Located in Wichita, Kansas, Capital III provides a triple bottom line approach to investments in manufacturing, real estate, energy, and education with a geographical focus on the US and Latin America. Economic capital is created through investments in manufacturing, energy, and real estate.  Social and Spiritual capital are created by leveraging the economic platform into venues (private education, prisons, third world countries) that all work in concert to achieve a virtuous, values-driven enterprise (a Stewardship Enterprise). Prior to founding Capital III, Pete spent 8 years in the commercial banking industry after graduating from the University of Kansas with a degree in business and finance.  He currently serves on the boards of UTG, Inc., the American Independence Funds, and Trinity Academy. Pete is married to Deborah, and they have 4 children and 8 grandchildren.
