Al­taCorp Cap­i­tal founder Ge­orge Gos­bee dies

Lethbridge Herald - - BUSINESS ✦ AGRICULTURE -

In­vest­ment firm Al­taCorp Cap­i­tal Inc. says its founder and CEO, Cal­gary oil and gas fi­nancier Ge­orge Gos­bee, died sud­denly on Sun­day.

Gos­bee was a for­mer gov­er­nor of the National Hockey League and, in 2013, led a group to pur­chase the Ari­zona Coyotes and re­struc­ture the team. Cur­rent team owner Andrew Bar­roway tweeted he was “deeply sad­dened” by the news.

Gos­bee, 48, founded Al­taCorp Cap­i­tal in 2010 and struck a deal to part­ner it with ATB Fi­nan­cial, an Al­berta gov­ern­ment-owned lender.

In 2000, he helped found Tri­s­tone Cap­i­tal Global Inc., an en­ergy in­vest­ment firm which he and his part­ners sold in 2009 to Aus­tralia’s Mac­quarie Group for about $130 mil­lion.
