Highview Capital has hired six investment professionals with expertise in private equity, credit and restructuring.
Brice Baradel and Steve Russell have joined the team as principals; PJ Gilbert and Dan Picmann as vice presidents; and Tim Park and Kapish Haldia as associates.
All six will be based in Highview’s Los Angeles headquarters.
These are the first hires for the Los Angeles-based opportunistic private equity investment vehicle since Highview announced the launch of its inaugural USD500 million evergreen fund in October 2016.
Ryan McCarthy, co-founder and senior portfolio manager of Highview, says: “I am thrilled to welcome the newest members of our team to Highview. All six are highly skilled and motivated professionals with backgrounds and expertise that will significantly strengthen our team. Our mandate allows us to provide capital through a variety of structures to middle-market companies in transition, and a critical driver of that approach is the diversity of our skills and experience. Our expanded team’s deep and broad range of expertise equips us to tailor solutions creatively to fit the current needs of a business and adapt our approach as a company evolves. With our dynamic mix of backgrounds, we are uniquely positioned to partner with management teams and bring value to companies throughout their life cycle.”
