PRESS RELEASE

DETROIT (March 22, 2022) — Leading middle market private equity firm Huron Capital (“Huron”) announced today that it has hired three new members to its team as the firm builds on the most active year in its history.

The three additions will provide critical support to Huron’s investment team as the firm works to build on the momentum gained in 2021 by expanding the firm’s resources and developing its platform companies.

Nolan Monforton and Joe Edwards joined Huron in January, and Paul Winkler joined this month. The new team members will be responsible for evaluating and analyzing investments made by the firm and will work alongside Huron’s group of seasoned private equity professionals. The three new hires coincide with the recent promotion of Cale Kaczmarek to Vice President.

“Coming on the heels of our most successful year ever, we are excited for Nolan, Paul and Joe to join the growing Huron family,” said James Mahoney, Managing Partner at Huron. “We are extremely fortunate to have a strong, experienced roster of talent with the vision and ability to drive continued achievements for the firm.”

Prior to joining Huron, Monforton was a Vice President at Angle Advisors, a middle-market investment bank focused on providing merger and acquisition advisory services to corporate clients, private business owners and private equity firms. His responsibilities included deal execution and strategic advisory for both sell and buy-side engagements in industrials and distribution. Monforton holds a bachelor’s in Economics from the University of Michigan.

Winkler’s experience stems from his role as Vice President at Rock Island Capital, a middle-market investment firm that works with clients to support their ownership transitions and growth strategies. Winkler was responsible for deal structuring, due diligence, underwriting, portfolio management, financial reporting and valuation. He has a master’s in Accounting and Information Systems and a bachelor’s in Accounting from Michigan State University.
Edwards’ most recent role was as an Associate at Ernst & Young within their strategy and transitions practice area. He worked with clients in a variety of industries, advising on corporate finance matters related to M&A transactions. Edwards has a bachelor’s in Finance from Michigan State University.

“Huron has continued to make phenomenal strides in reaching strategic growth goals with the commitment to our industry sector-focused strategy,” Mahoney said. “We are excited to have these new hires in place and look forward to their partnership and collaboration in driving the firm’s future success.”
