London and New York-based alternative investment firm Pamplona Capital Management has named Rob Mionis, former president and CEO of StandardAero, as operating partner.
Established in 2005, the firm invests across private equity, fund of hedge funds and single manager hedge funds with over $6bn in assets managed on behalf of public pension funds, international wealth managers, multinational corporations, family offices and funds of hedge funds.
In this new position, Mionis will both drive new investment opportunities with a focus on the industrials and aerospace sectors, and support some of Pamplona’s portfolio companies. He will also immediately join the board of directors of laundry operator Coinmach, Pamplona’s most recently acquired business.
“Rob brings a wealth of operating and domain expertise in Industrials and Aerospace which are targeted growth sectors for Pamplona Capital. Rob’s insight, board and operational experience, will prove invaluable for Pamplona Capital and our portfolio companies” said John Halsted, managing partner of Pamplona Capital .
Prior to joining StandardAero, he worked as vice president of integrated supply chain for Honeywell’s $12bn aerospace business. He began his career with General Electric in the manufacturing management programme, holding positions of progressive responsibility over nine years at several GE businesses.
