Private equity firm Pamplona Capital Management is expanding to the U.S. with the hire of Brian Ratzan.
The London-based firm said that Ratzan would lead its new U.S. effort. Pamplona said that it and Ratzan would hire a full team of investment professionals in the U.S.
Ratzan joins the firm from Vestar Capital, where he spent 13 years and most recently led its consumer group. Prior to joining Vestar, Ratzan worked at '21' International Holdings and Donaldson Lufkin and Jenrette.
"We are excited to have someone of Brian's caliber leading the expansion of our global footprint to the U.S.," John Halsted, managing principal, said. "We believe there are significant opportunities for us in the U.S., and Brian's experience will be invaluable in accomplishing this important objective for our firm."
