Vestar Announces 2011 Promotions

We are happy to announce two new promotions, Michael Gross and Patrick Kane, to Senior Associate.

As a reminder, Mike has been an Associate in Vestar's Financial Services group since joining the firm in 2008. Previously he was a member of the Financial Institutions Group at Credit Suisse Securities. Mike holds a BS in Business Administration, with majors in Finance and Accounting, from Indiana University. He also holds an MBA from Indiana University's Kelley School of Business. Mike was instrumental in Vestar's most recent investment in Triton container.

Patrick is an Associate in Vestar's Munich office for the past year after spending three years in NY working on multiple investments including Press Ganey. He came to the firm in 2007 from Morgan Stanley, where he worked in the Healthcare Investment Banking group. Patrick earned his BA in International Studies, magna cum laude, from Middlebury College.

We would also like to welcome back Winston Song. Winston will return to Vestar this summer as a Senior Associate, after receiving his MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. During Winston's prior tenure at Vestar, he worked closely on RTS and Birds Eye investments.
