New Associate at O2

O2 Investment Partners has hired Tyler Crook as an associate on its investment team. In his new position, Mr. Crook will be responsible for evaluating new transactions, conducting due diligence, underwriting new investments, and working with O2’s portfolio companies.

“We are excited to welcome Tyler to the O2 team,” said Todd Fink, a managing partner at O2. “His transaction and analytical experience provide excellent additional bench strength as we expand our existing businesses and seek new opportunities.”

Prior to joining O2, Mr. Crook was an analyst at middle-market investment bank Robert Baird beginning in 2018 where he focused on sell-side consumer products transactions. Earlier in his career, from 2016 to 2018, he was a consultant in the transaction services group of Deloitte & Touche advising private equity and strategic buyers on technology and fintech transactions.

Mr. Crook has his undergraduate degree and MBA from Michigan State University. He is also a certified public accountant.

O2 Investment Partners makes control investments of $5 million to $75 million in companies with EBITDAs from $2 million to $10 million located anywhere in the US and Canada but prefers the Midwest and the Great Lakes regions. Sectors of interest include niche manufacturing, niche distribution, select service businesses, and certain technology businesses.

In October 2017, O2 held a final closing of its Oxygen Fund with an above-target $100 million of capital commitments. O2, based in the Detroit suburb of Bloomfield Hills, is backed by the Orley family which has been investing in operating businesses and real estate since 1950.
