NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Monomoy Capital Partners, a private equity firm focused on value investing and business improvement in the middle market, is pleased to announce that Ashley Johansen has joined the firm as a Managing Director and Head of Investor Relations and Fundraising. Ms. Johansen will help Monomoy develop a top-tier investor relations program designed to enhance and expand the firm’s partnership with investors.
Ms. Johansen has over 17 years of experience in marketing and communications in the financial services sector and seven years of experience raising capital for private equity. She spent 10 years of her career at Coller Capital, where she helped institutionalize the business, build out the firm’s global presence and raise Coller’s sixth and seventh funds. After a brief stint as a principal in investor relations for AlpInvest Partners, Ms. Johansen completed her work at Coller as a Partner and Head of Capital Raising with responsibility for all global fundraising initiatives. She holds a Bachelor of General Studies in Communications from the University of Kansas.
“We are thrilled to welcome Ashley to the Monomoy team,” said Dan Collin, co-Chief Executive Officer and a Monomoy partner. “We realize that creating strong partnerships and open communication with our investors is essential to the success of our business. Ashley brings the level of talent and experience that will help us build a first class investor relations program at Monomoy and strengthen our relationship with every limited partner.”
Founded in 2005, Monomoy Capital Partners targets middle market businesses with up to $500 million in enterprise value in a wide range of industries that can benefit from Monomoy’s business improvement skills and strategic guidance. The firm currently owns middle market businesses in the furniture sector, the air-conditioning industry, the automotive supply chain, consumer electronics and building products.
“I was looking for an opportunity to build and expand a successful financial services business with a group of people who share my commitment to transparency and partnership. Monomoy and its professionals stood out to me because of their culture of openness and accountability,” said Ms. Johansen. “Smaller firms do not often prioritize investor relations. Monomoy understands that creating a continuous, open dialogue with its limited partners is an important part of its future success as a business. I am excited about the opportunity to lead that effort at Monomoy.”
