Clayton, Dubilier & Rice expands partner ranks

Clayton, Dubilier & Rice has appointed four new partners with an average tenure at the firm of more than a decade. 

The new partners, Sarah Kim, Stephen W Shapiro, Derek L Strum and JL Zrebiec, have sourced new investments, led transactions and managed new investments in CD&R's four core industry verticals – consumer/retail, healthcare, industrials, and services.
“Sarah, Stephen, Derek, and JL each have made extraordinary contributions to the Firm over the past 10 years and played key roles in some of our most successful investments,” says Donald J Gogel, president and chief executive officer of CD&R. “Not only have they demonstrated the capabilities and commitment required to be a partner of the firm, but also, importantly, embody the values that inform all of our commercial dealings and which we believe make CD&R’s culture so distinctive.”
Kim joined CD&R in 2008 and has been integral to a number of the firm’s investments, including Diversey, HD Supply, ServiceMaster, David’s Bridal and Vets First Choice. Today she focuses on healthcare investments and serves on the board of Vets First Choice.
Shapiro joined CD&R in 2002 and today focuses on investments in the Services sector. His CD&R transaction experience includes investments in Kinko’s, ServiceMaster, Solenis, Tranzact, TruGreen, and Univar. Shapiro currently serves as a director of Solenis, Tranzact, TruGreen and Univar.
Strum joined CD&R in 2003 and specialises in healthcare investments. Transactions in which Strum has played leadership roles include agilon health, AssuraMed, Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare, Envision Healthcare, Healogics, PharMEDium, and VWR International. Strum currently serves as a director of agilon health, Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare, and Healogics.
Zrebiec joined CD&R in 2004 and has devoted his efforts to investments in the industrials area, including Atkore, Brand Energy and Infrastructure Services, Hussmann, NCI Building Systems, Roofing Supply Group, and Wilsonart. He also was involved with the firm’s Hertz investment. Zrebiec currently serves as a director of Atkore, Brand, NCI Building Systems and Wilsonart.
