Shaun Gordon

Shaun Gordon is the Chairman of Astria Group, and an experienced operator and investor. He launched Astria Group to solve a problem plaguing millions of business owners: a lack of advisory firms that possess both transactional and operational expertise that focus on lower middle-market companies. Most advisory firms are focused on assisting companies with an exit but lack the experience of navigating operational challenges. Shaun focuses on building high-performing teams, executing growth strategies, helping companies scale and empowering organizations to unlock maximal value.

Shaun served as Founder and CEO of BreachQuest, a cybersecurity company that developed incident response technology to minimize breach cost and downtime. Shaun lead the company’s sale to Resilience, a cyberinsurance company.

Shaun is the Founder and Managing Partner of AGI Partners, a private equity firm focused on acquiring and scaling companies in the lower middle market. The Association for Corporate Growth (ACG NY), the premier global community for middle-market M&A deal-makers, has recognized AGI Partners with awards including Private Equity Firm of the Year. He has also received M&A Advisor’s 40 Under 40 Emerging Leaders Award for his work as a Dealmaker.

In 2010 Shaun co-founded and served as Chairman of Pristine Environments, a leading integrated facilities management (FM) and building intelligence technology company with operations across North America. He drove the company’s growth from its formation to nearly $100 million in revenue within five years, which included executing five acquisitions. From 2017 to 2019, Shaun served as CEO and led a successful operational turnaround, resulting in expansion of profitability and  an acquisition by KBS. Today, Pristine Environments is part of the KBS Facilities platform, owned by Cerberus, with annual revenue exceeding $2 billion.

In 2009, Shaun’s passion for improving access to quality education led him to a Founding Member of the Board of Trustees of Success Academy Bronx 1, a free public elementary charter school serving 700+ students in the South Bronx area of Manhattan, which was recognized in 2016 by the US Department of Education as a “Blue Ribbon School.”

After receiving his degree in Finance from NYU, Shaun managed a healthcare and defense portfolio at a global investment fund that he co-founded. During his time at the fund he invested in over 30 countries and met with more than 1700 CEOs of global public companies.

Shaun has received recognition for his efforts and is an alumnus of the Asia Society’s Asia 21 Young Leaders Initiative, the Young Leadership Dialogue of the Australian American Leadership Dialogue, Atlantik-Bruecke’s German-American Young Leaders Conference, and is a French-American Foundation Young Leader. Shaun is a member of the Advisory Board for The Resolution Project, an organization that develops socially responsible young leaders.

After spending 20 years in New York City, Shaun lives in Dallas with his wife and two children. When he’s not chasing his kids around, he enjoys distance running, and mentoring aspiring entrepreneurs.
