New York-based private equity firm High Road Capital Partners has tapped Steven Siwinski as partner and Scott Rubino as vice president.

Siwinski was most recently a finance operating partner at Marlin Equity Partners. He began his career at Ernst & Young, where he rose to partner in the transaction advisory services practice, and subsequently held positions at The Hain Celestial Group and FTI Consulting.

In his new role at High Road, Siwinski will serve as a finance operating partner, responsible for implementing financial best practices, value creation initiatives and add-on acquisition integration plans across High Road’s portfolio companies.

Prior to joining High Road, Rubino worked at CI Capital Partners and Saw Mill Capital, where he was responsible for sourcing investment opportunities, leading due diligence and negotiations and managing portfolio companies.

At High Road, he will be responsible for new platform acquisitions and portfolio company add-ons, as well as assisting in overseeing portfolio companies.

“Steve’s proven expertise will help us achieve excellence in financial operations across the High Road portfolio,” said Bob Fitzsimmons, High Road’s managing partner. “Scott’s investment skills add to our already strong investment execution and portfolio company value creation capabilities. We are thrilled to welcome Steve and Scott to the High Road team as we continue to grow the firm.”

Formed in 2007, High Road Capital Partners is focused on smaller middle market transactions and currently manages over $470 million of committed capital.
