New Mountain Capital seeks to generate exceptional returns through investor value-added and growth rather than debt. The firm's private efforts focus on intensive fundamental research, the proactive creation of proprietary investment advantages in carefully selected sectors and assisting managements in improving their businesses. New Mountain is a generalist firm but they tend to focus on investments in defensive growth industries. They target sectors that should succeed in both good and bad economies and are large enough and growing rapidly enough to achieve very high valuations and returns at exit. The firm has particular expertise in the following sectors: education, healthcare, logistics, business services, federal information technology services, media, software, insurance, consumer products, financial services, technology, infrastructure and energy.New Mountain looks for companies that are market leaders in sustainable growth niches and have high barriers to competitive entry as demonstrated by high operating margins and strong downside protection in all reasonable worst-case scenarios. They also look for companies that offer the opportunity for extraordinary value creation due to rapid growth or other special factors that exist at the time of the investment. Investments typically range from $100 million to $500 million per transaction.

Managing Director
2001 - 2007
GSC Group specializes in credit-based alternative investment strategies including corporate credit, equity and distressed debt investing and structured mortgage products. The firm's corporate credit group manages collateralized debt obligation (CDO/CLO) funds in both the US and Europe and 2 corporate mezzanine lending funds in Europe. GSC's CDO funds invest primarily in middle-market corporate loans, broadly-syndicated US and European corporate loans, high-yield corporate bonds and US mezzanine corporate debt. They manage these assets within CDO funds to take advantage of the difference between the investment grade borrowing costs of the CDO/CLO funds and the higher yielding returns on the underlying investments in corporate debt securities. Their investment process emphasizes investing in securities of issuers which are attractively priced, hold senior positions in the issuers' capital structures and have low leverage through the purchased debt tranche. GSC seeks to invest in securities issued by industry leaders with sustainable market shares in attractive sectors.GSC invests primarily in first and second lien term loans and mezzanine debt of private US middle-market companies and high yield bonds and may opportunistically invest in distressed debt, debt and equity securities of public companies, credit default swaps, emerging market debt and CDO vehicles holding debt, equity or synthetic securities.GSC's corporate mezzanine lending team provides mezzanine lending in the form of subordinated debt and preferred equity to support financial sponsors, corporations and others seeking to finance LBOs, strategic acquisitions, growth strategies or recapitalizations in Europe.GSC's control distressed debt investment strategy targets companies which they believe are operationally sound, but are overburdened with high levels of debt. GSC's distressed debt investment team often assumes a leadership role in the consensual financial restructuring or bankruptcy process. The acquired debt securities often are converted into new restructured equity at a cost basis that GSC believes represents attractive acquisition valuations. GSC typically focuses on securities that are either the most senior in the capital structure or have only a moderate level of debt senior to them.GSC's Structured Mortgage Products group manages various synthetic and hybrid ABS/CDO funds, a real estate investment trust and also pursues a mortgage-related absolute return strategy. They invest in a full range of asset-backed securities (ABS), commercial mortgage-backed securities and mortgage-backed securities, offering ABS CDO funds and other fund vehicles and separate accounts tailored to the risk preferences of their investors.In addition to its ABS CDOs, GSC's structured finance team manages a real estate investment trust and the GSC Pendulum Fund I which employs a long-only strategy that focuses on purchasing distressed ABS and CDO assets.
