Graycliff Partners appoints Operating Partner

Graycliff Partners has appointed Pradeep Saha as an Operating Partner. In this role, Saha will work closely with the investment team to source and evaluate new acquisitions, as well as support Graycliff equity fund portfolio company management teams with ongoing strategic guidance.

Saha currently serves as Chairman of the Board of Worldwide Electric, a current Graycliff portfolio company. His deep industrial experience aligns well with Graycliff’s primary investment focus. Over the past 25 years, Mr. Saha has led business units at Fortune 500 companies (including GE and Ametek), served as CEO of multiple middle market private equity-backed businesses (Signature Systems and Horsburgh & Scott) and advised various private equity funds.

“We have gotten to know Pradeep well through his Board involvement at Worldwide Electric and his assistance with evaluating other investment opportunities,” says Andrew Trigg, Graycliff Managing Partner. “We are thrilled to have him join the team and work full-time in creating value for our investors.”

“Graycliff was an ideal fit for me; we share similar values that are rooted in creating lasting value for portfolio companies in a collaborative and responsible manner,” says Saha.

Saha holds an undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering and an MBA from the University of Toledo. He is also a graduate of Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Business executive program.

Graycliff is investing out of its fourth private equity fund, Graycliff Private Equity Partners IV LP. The current fund is a continuation of the firm’s strategy of making equity investments in lower middle market companies, with a focus on acquiring and/or partnering with founder and family-owned businesses in the manufacturing, business services, and value-added distribution sectors.
