Alternative investments firm Angelo Gordon & Co. has added a pair of professionals to its private equity team.
Richard Leonard has been named a managing director and Michael Koike as vice president. Both are based in New York.
“We believe Richard and Michael’s decision to join us is confirmation not only that this is a great time to find superb private equity talent but, as well, confirmation of the attractiveness of our group’s outstanding investment opportunities,” new bosses David Roberts and Arthur Peponis, who head Angelo Gordon’s p.e. and special situations group, said.
Leonard joined the firm from Bruckmann Rosser Sherrill & Co. in October. He served as managing director of leveraged buyout investments for the restaurant, retail, food and manufacturing industries. He’s also done stints at J.W. Childs Associates and Audas Group.
Koike worked at Ripplewood Holdings before coming to Angelo Gordon this month. He was vice president focused on consumer products, manufacturing and telecommunications. He previously worked at Merrill Lynch.
