Tobin joins Riverside from Global Travel, where he was chief operating officer and a member of the board of advisors.

The Riverside Company focuses on the smaller end of the middle market, specializing in companies with enterprise values of less than $100 million. Since 1988, the firm has invested in 129 transactions with a total value of $2.1 billion, sales of $2.4 billion, EBITDA of $263 million and more than 11,000 employees.
