New York-based private equity firm Castle Harlan has promoted Justin Wender to the role of president of the firm. He succeeds Leonard Harlan, who will continue to serve as chairman of the newly-formed executive committee.
In June 2004, Wender was named chief investment officer and a senior managing director. He has been with Castle Harlan since 1993, during which time the firm invested three funds totaling approximately $2 billion.
In recent years, Wender has been taking increasing leadership responsibility in the investment process and directing his colleagues involved in structuring and managing deals. He has also been presiding over the firm's weekly meetings of managing directors and other professionals.
The executive changes are effective immediately.
