Sep 29 2009 | 11:03am ET

Pine Brook Road Partners, a New York-based private equity firm that focuses on energy and financial services industries, has tapped Oliver Goldstein as a managing director.

Together with the firm’s current energy partners, Mike McMahon and Craig Jarchow, Goldstein will be responsible for managing Pine Brook’s energy investing activities.

Goldstein joins Pine Brook from Eton Park Capital Management, an investment firm with over $12 billion of capital under management, where he was a partner and senior managing director responsible for U.S. private investment efforts with focus in financial services, energy and power. At Eton Park, he established an investment strategy focused on growth equity financings and special situations.

Prior to his tenure with Eton Park Capital Management, Goldstein was with Warburg Pincus from 1999 to 2005, most recently as a partner and managing director, with responsibility for leveraged buyouts and direct investments in public companies. While at Warburg Pincus, Goldstein worked with Howard Newman, now CEO of Pine Brook, on the firm’s investment in Dime Bancorp. He was also the recipient of the first John L. Vogelstein Award, awarded to the Warburg Pincus investment professional who most demonstrates keen investment judgment.

Goldstein had previously worked at middle market private equity fund Fenway Partners and at Goldman, Sachs & Co.

“With the increasing number of opportunities in the energy sector, the experience that Oliver brings will be tremendous asset to our team,” said Newman. “We are pleased to welcome Oliver to Pine Brook.”
