joe nf1Former US Senator Joseph Lieberman has joined Victory Park Capital as chairman of the firm’s Executive Board. Brendan Carroll, partner and co-founder of Victory Park, previously worked for Senator Lieberman during his 2000 vice presidential campaign and was a staff assistant in Mr. Lieberman’s office in the mid-1990s.

“I am honored to welcome Senator Lieberman,” said Mr. Carroll. “His wealth of experience will bring tremendous value and his appointment serves as a testament to the growth of our firm.”

The former Connecticut senator, who served four terms, was the Democratic candidate for US vice president in 2000. He spent 40 years in elected office, including 24 years in the United States Senate, helping shape public policy in nearly every sector, before retiring in January 2013. He chaired the Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs and served on the Environment and Public Works and Small Business Committees. Previously, he spent 10 years in the Connecticut State Senate, including three terms as majority leader and six years as Connecticut’s Attorney General.

“While in the US Senate, I fought for policies that would allow small businesses to thrive,” said Senator Lieberman. “I look forward to a long-term partnership with Victory Park Capital that will position the firm for continued growth.”

Victory Park Capital invests from$10 million to $50 million per transaction in small cap public companies and middle market private companies that typically generate less than $150 million in revenue and less than $30 million of EBITDA. The firm focuses on complex situations and seeks to build long term sustainable value in its companies. Victory Park is based in Chicago and has offices in Boston and San Francisco (

“Senator Lieberman’s business acumen and deep policy background will be critical as we position for future growth,” said Richard Levy, VPC managing partner and founder. “In today’s heightened regulatory environment, his extensive legislative knowledge will help us navigate an increasingly complex marketplace.”
