Angeles Equity Partners has added Mike Kay to its team as a new operating partner. Mr. Kay has experience across multiple industrial sectors, including automotive, aerospace and defense.
Before joining Angeles Equity, Mr. Kay was with McKinsey for nearly four years, most recently as an engagement manager where he worked with industrial companies on growth initiatives, operating improvements, and working capital enhancements.
Earlier, for just over five years, he was a detachment commander in the U.S. Army Special Forces Green Berets with deployments to Afghanistan and the Philippines. Prior to becoming a special forces officer, he deployed to Iraq with the 101st Airborne Division.
“Mike Kay is a high caliber addition to our organization,” said Timothy Meyer, co-founder and managing partner of Angeles Equity. “We are excited to have Mike join the team and look forward to him playing an integral role in evaluating new investment opportunities as well as partnering with management teams to realize the full potential of our investments.”
Angeles Equity makes control investments in companies with enterprise values up to $200 million that have headquarters and primary operations in the United States and Canada. Sectors of interest include aerospace, automotive, building products, capital goods, chemicals, electronics, manufacturing, metals, transportation and logistics, packaging, and distribution. In January 2017, the Los Angeles-based firm closed Angeles Equity Partners I LP with $360 million in capital.
“The addition of Mike further demonstrates our commitment to attracting and recruiting top talent,” said Jordan Katz, co-founder and managing partner of Angeles Equity Partners. “Mike possesses a unique skill set we believe will have a positive impact on our firm and the performance of our portfolio companies.”
Mr. Kay has his MBA from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, and his undergraduate degree from the United States Military Academy at West Point.
