BPOC History

BPOC was founded in 1996 by Dave Beecken, Bill Petty, and Ken O’Keefe as a healthcare-focused investment firm. Since its founding, BPOC has been a valued partner to healthcare leaders, expanding to five Partners in addition to the Founders. Today, the Founders and senior investment team have an average tenure of 20 years at BPOC and 25 years of healthcare investing. Greg Moerschel, who joined the firm as a Principal at the initial closing of Fund I in 1996 and became a Partner in 2000, was named President of BPOC in 2015 and Managing Partner in January 2018. At that time Dave, Bill, and Ken transitioned into an advisory capacity.
