What excites you about industrial manufacturing?

I firmly believe that private equity is a people business. The cornerstone of a great company and great investment is matching the right leaders with the right resources to succeed. I’ve invested in multiple industries during my career but connect most with the blue-collar, hard-working spirit embodied in domestic manufacturing. From the C-suite to the shop floor, I enjoy building relationships with the people driving America’s manufacturing renaissance.
