Huron Capital has named Tony Pulice as a partner for its Flex Equity team. Previously, he was a principal at Rockbridge Growth Equity Management LP and vice president of private equity at Goldman Sachs.
DETROIT (Sept. 5, 2019) — Leading lower-middle-market private equity firm Huron Capital announced today that Tony Pulice has joined Huron’s Flex Equity team as a partner. He joins fellow partner Doug Sutton and will be responsible for identifying, executing and managing non-control equity investments in compelling businesses.
Pulice previously served as a principal at Rockbridge Growth Equity Management, L.P. and vice president of private equity at Goldman Sachs & Co. He began his career at Boston Consulting Group, where he was a strategic management consultant in the consumer goods and business products sectors.
“Huron Flex Equity offers business owners an attractive and flexible non-control equity investment option that is designed to help stimulate further success for their businesses by providing capital for growth strategies and investments in operations,” Pulice said. “I look forward to helping form partnerships with current and future business owners.”
The Flex Equity strategy provides owners in the United States and Canada the option of working with a value-added partner without relinquishing majority ownership or control. Huron Flex Equity also seeks to leverage the firm’s operational, financial and strategic resources to help businesses grow and meet their goals.
“We believe Pulice has the right mix of skills and experience to identify and execute investment opportunities with companies that generally range in size from $20 million to $200 million in revenue,” said Sutton, who leads the Flex Equity strategy.
“Tony is a veteran of the financial services industry and an experienced leader in minority and majority equity recapitalizations, mergers and acquisitions, and debt financings for businesses across a variety of industries,” Sutton said. “We expect his background leading a variety of specialty private equity teams will provide valuable insight to our partner companies.”
