NEW YORK--()--Dextra Partners, a multi-strategy private equity firm focused on the middle market, today announced the hiring of five team members across several functions.

The new team members all previously worked together with Dextra’s six founding partners at their prior firm, GoldPoint Partners. They are:

  • Richard Hung: Principal, Investments
  • Alexander Krostich: Senior Associate, Investments
  • Gabriella Paradiso: Senior Associate, Investor Relations & ESG
  • Danielle Rounick: Director, Investor Relations & Business Development
  • Leonidas Vasilakos: Vice President, Investments

Following the announcement of its formation earlier this year, Dextra has $2.7 billion in investable capital from a select group of strategic partners.

Hung, Krostich, Rounick and Vasilakos previously worked in similar roles at Apogem Capital, which was formed in 2022 through the merger of GoldPoint with other investment groups by its parent company. Paradiso was most recently with Insight Partners after previously working at GoldPoint.

“We are thrilled to be working again with Richard, Alex, Gab, Danielle, and Lee,” the founding partners said. “We have tremendous confidence in their ability to help execute Dextra’s partnership-oriented business model.”

Dextra also recently announced two partner-level hires, with Alisa Makhlis and Lorne Smith joining as Chief Financial Officer and General Counsel & Chief Compliance Officer, respectively.

“Our recent team expansion, comprised primarily of former colleagues who understand our differentiated approach, establishes an even stronger foundation for our investors and partners as we continue to scale,” the founding partners added.
