GREENVILLE, S.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–John Warren, founder and chairman of Greenville-based Lima One Capital, has sold his majority ownership stake in the company to current minority partners. Warren founded Lima One in 2011 and has grown the company to more than 300 full and part-time employees around the country.

Under Warren’s leadership at Lima One, the company doubled in growth for four straight years and grew its headquarters in Greenville to more than 160 full-time employees.

“It has been a true honor to lead Lima One Capital. This company is filled with incredible men and women who work hard every day to serve our customers. While it is bittersweet to leave the company, I am proud of everything we have accomplished from right here in Greenville. Lima One has a very bright future ahead of it,” Warren said.

Lima One Capital’s headquarters and leadership team will remain in Greenville. All current jobs located in Greenville will remain in the city.

“Lima One has been a critical part of Greenville’s success over the past ten years. When leaders like John choose to build their headquarters right here in Greenville, it shows other business leaders the benefits of locating their companies in the Upstate,” said Knox White, mayor of Greenville.

Lima One’s CEO Jeff Tennyson, who joined the company in 2018 when Warren ran for governor of South Carolina, said, “While we will miss John day-to-day and the meaningful impact he has had on Lima One’s success, our management team remains fully in place, and we’re well positioned to continue our growth and success.
