Our Caron Capital Team
Since its inception, Caron Capital has benefitted from a strong leadership team with the skills and expertise necessary for its success. With decades of experience unique to the operation of a family office that spans a continent, Caron Capital’s team shares the core values necessary to support the culture and drive the purpose of the firm.
In addition to its internal team, Caron Capital can count on external support from reputable investment and consulting firms and experienced professionals in the fields of wealth management, law, taxes and estate planning. These professionals not only participate actively in the quarterly meetings but also contribute on an ongoing basis to the success of the family office.
In his role as co-managing partner of Caron Capital, Eric Caron oversees the management of an extremely diverse portfolio that represents the holdings of the Caron Family Office. Long before founding Caron Capital, Eric obtained his bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering from the University of Toronto followed by an MBA from Harvard Business School in 1993. Upon completion of his MBA, Eric joined the McKinsey & Company management firm, where he assisted large, international clients with a variety of strategic and operational issues in the US, Canada, Brazil, and Japan.
In 1995, Eric added to his business successes when he joined Groupe Tremca, a Québec concrete product manufacturer formerly led by his father. Under Eric’s leadership, the company expanded its sales fourfold and became the leading concrete products manufacturers in the province. After Groupe Tremca’s sale in 2009, Eric became co-managing partner of Caron Capital, where he is intimately involved with all aspects of investment management, including direct contact with many of the businesses owned by the family office.
A key to Eric’s success in the family office is his status as a devoted family man. He has been happily married since 1989 and has three children; together, the family enjoys attending athletic events and traveling. In fact, Eric has been to 40 different countries either solo or with his family. Eric is also a professional engineer and active member of Ordre des Ingénieurs du Québec as well as the Young Presidents Organization.

Hugh’s career successes include expanding the Florida family business, Tremron, from one plant to five and increasing its manufacturing capacity tenfold. Tremron became the largest manufacturer of hardscape concrete products in the Southeastern U.S. Tremron was sold in 2016, and Hugh now focuses his efforts on Caron Capital, where he is involved in all aspects of the business including direct investments, alternative investments through leading managers, public equities, and fixed income.
Outside of his career, Hugh is a devoted family man. He has been married since 1999 and has two children.
