Oehlmann, who will work out of the firm’s LA office, will primarily target deals in the Southern California and West Coast areas.
Prior to Marling Oehlmann was an associate in the global business development group at Platinum Equity Partners.
Evergreen co-founder and managing partner TJ McGill said, “Matt’s extensive network, his proven ability to drive deal flow, and his experience identifying attractive investment opportunities are a perfect fit for Evergreen.
“We look forward to continuing to build our presence in California as well as the West Coast.”
Evergreen manages two private equity funds totaling $700m and invests in traditional buyouts, management led buyouts, and growth equity investments involving traditional middle-market companies.
Oehlmann’s move comes just weeks after LA-headquartered Marlin Equity Partners raced to its $1.6bn hard cap for Fund IV in just over four months.
AltAssets reported in May that the firm had hit the maximum for Marlin Equity IV, with commitments coming from LPs including the New Jersey Division of Investment, which agreed to part with up to $100m, and the Texas County & District Retirement System, which could hand over up to $35m.
