Natalya Michaels Joins MidOcean

MidOcean Partners has hired Natalya Michaels as a managing director to focus on marketing, investor relations and business development activities across the firm’s private equity and credit businesses.

“Natalya brings a wide range of business development experience that we believe will help MidOcean expand its investor base and product offerings,” said Deborah Hodges, COO of MidOcean. “Her skill set and investor relationships complement those of our existing team and will help strengthen our marketing efforts.”

Ms. Michaels has more than two decades of experience in private equity. Most recently, she was a managing director at Artisan Partners, where she was the head of business development for Artisan’s thematic equity team, which pursues investments in industries where the team’s views on industry fundamentals differ from consensus estimates. Earlier in her career, she spent nine years on the marketing and investor relations team at Eton Park Capital Management, a multi-strategy investment firm.  Ms. Michaels began her career at Goldman Sachs in 1998 where she worked in investment banking and private equity in both New York and London.

MidOcean invests in middle-market companies that are active in the business and consumer services sectors. In September 2018, MidOcean held a final close of its latest fund, MidOcean Partners V LP, at its hard cap of $1.2 billion in limited partner commitments. The new fund was oversubscribed and closed above its original $1 billion target. MidOcean Credit Partners was launched in 2009 and manages over $8 billion of capital across a range of credit strategies.  MidOcean was founded in 2003 and is based in New York (www.midoceanpartners.com).
