KRG Makes Executive Decisions

Jun 14 2007 | 1:46pm ET

KRG Capital Partners has hired three former senior operating executives, Blair Tikker, Ted Nark and Stewart Fisher, as managing directors.

Tikker joined the firm last year as a consultant, primarily focused on deal sourcing and organizational development in KRG’s portfolio companies, and was brought in-house as a managing director last month. Nark, who will be joining KRG later this month, previously served as CEO of White Cap Construction Supply, a former KRG portfolio company which was sold to Home Depot in 2004. And Fisher, the former CFO of Accellent Inc., a provider of manufacturing, supply chain and engineering services to the medical device industry, will join the firm next month.

"Their 50 plus years of collective operating experience will be of considerable value to the Firm's portfolio companies, and they will be integral team members in identifying and sourcing attractive investment opportunities," said Mark King, KRG's co-founder.

KRG was founded in 1996 and is investing from its current $715 million Fund III.
