Littlejohn & Co. Veterans Antonio Miranda and Steven Raich Assume Senior Leadership Roles Join Michael Klein and Brian Ramsay as Managing Partners

GREENWICH, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Littlejohn & Co., a middle-market private equity and special situations investment firm, announced the appointment of Antonio (Tony) Miranda and Steven Raich as Managing Partners. Messrs. Miranda and Raich, along with Michael Klein, Co-Founder, Chief Executive Officer, and Managing Partner, and Brian Ramsay, President and Managing Partner, together will be responsible for the day-to-day management, leadership, and strategic direction of the firm while continuing in their investment and portfolio management roles.

Messrs. Raich and Miranda joined Littlejohn in 2000 and 2004, respectively, and are both members of the firm’s Investment Committee. They each play active roles across Littlejohn’s portfolio investments and hold multiple board positions.

Mr. Klein stated, “I have had the great pleasure of working alongside Steve and Tony for over twenty years, and in that time, I have seen their profound impact on our firm. The strategic decision to promote Steve and Tony reflects their exceptional contributions to Littlejohn in driving value creation and leadership throughout the organization over the course of their careers. Just as Angus Littlejohn ensured a thoughtful and seamless leadership transition to Brian and me, we too are focused on the continued evolution of our firm’s leadership as we look to the future. Steve and Tony have a deep understanding of our business, culture, and investment philosophy and there is no doubt that with their addition as Managing Partners, Littlejohn is well-positioned for continued long-term growth and success.”

Mr. Klein co-founded Littlejohn & Co. with Angus Littlejohn in 1996, first serving in the role as President. In 2012, upon Mr. Littlejohn’s transition to non-executive Chairman, he was appointed Chief Executive Officer, and Brian Ramsay, who has been at Littlejohn since 1997, became President of the firm.

Mr. Ramsay commented, “These appointments reflect the strength of Littlejohn, the depth of our talented team, and our commitment to delivering excellence. On an individual level, Steve’s remarkable achievements within the Building Products & Construction vertical have positioned Littlejohn as an innovative leader in the sector; his expertise across control private equity, structured capital, and special situations investments has solidified our reputation as a trailblazer in these areas. Similarly, Tony’s strategic acumen in the Value-Added Distribution vertical has been pivotal in establishing Littlejohn as a premier investor in middle-market specialty distribution businesses, driving success across diverse markets. Together their extensive experience, proven track record, and unwavering commitment to our firm’s values make them invaluable additions to our senior leadership team.”

“Littlejohn is a unique firm that champions character, integrity, and grit, and it is a testament to the culture that Michael and Brian have built that we have spent the last twenty years working together. In close collaboration with Michael and Brian as well as the rest of our partners, we are eager to lead Littlejohn into its next phase of growth and innovation,” added Messrs. Miranda and Raich. “We are dedicated to upholding Littlejohn’s strong values and long legacy of excellence as well as driving sustained success for our portfolio companies.”
