Huron Capital — a leading lower-middle-market private equity firm — announced that it named Anthony Pulice as a partner on the Flex Equity team. Pulice is joining fellow partner Doug Sutton and is going to be responsible for identifying, executing, and managing non-control equity investments in compelling businesses.

Pulice was previously a principal at Rockbridge Growth Equity Management, L.P. and worked as a VP of private equity at Goldman Sachs & Co. Pulice had started out 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,” said Pulice in a statement. “I look forward to helping form partnerships with current and future business owners.”

The Flex Equity strategy group provides owners in the US and Canada the option of working with a value-added partner without relinquishing majority ownership or control. And Huron Flex Equity also seeks to leverage the firm’s operational, financial, and strategic resources to help businesses grow and meet their goals.

“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,” added Sutton — who leads the Flex Equity strategy group at Huron. “We expect his background leading a variety of specialty private equity teams will provide valuable insight to our partner companies.”

In the past couple of decades, Huron Capital successfully established six investment funds totaling approximately $1.8 billion in capital and completed over 175 transactions through North America. And Huron Capital portfolio companies have had aggregate annual revenues exceeding $3 billion, 15,000 employees, and operated over 325 facilities. Huron Capital targets control and non-control equity stakes in sound companies that the firm believes can benefit from its operational approach to creating value. And these transactions typically take the form of equity recapitalizations, family succession transactions, market-entry strategies, corporate carve-outs, and management buyouts of companies having revenues up to $200 million.
