Bertram Capital (“Bertram”), a middle market private equity firm headquartered in Foster City, California, today announced the addition of two new members to the Origination & Capital Markets team. Paul Koeniger joins as Vice President and Bobby Muench joins as Origination Analyst.
“We are thrilled to welcome Paul and Bobby to the Origination and Capital Markets team,” said David Hellier, Partner at Bertram. “Paul and Bobby bring additive skill sets that will help us extend our deep middle market intermediary relationships and lead the launch of our thesis driven, technology-enabled sourcing effort.”
Paul will focus on supporting Bertram’s established sourcing and origination efforts by managing and expanding the firm’s deep intermediary relationships. His responsibilities will also include assessing new investment opportunities and assisting the sell side selection process. Additionally, Paul will lead Bertram’s thesis-driven company outreach efforts. Paul brings significant founder-owned company outreach experience from his work with Capstone, a leading middle market investment bank, where he was a Vice President on the deal origination team. Prior to Capstone, Paul held business development roles within the asset management space at Cerulli Associates and F-Squared Investments. Paul is based in Boston, MA.
Bobby Muench recently joined Bertram to develop and launch the company’s proprietary, technology-enabled sourcing platform. This initiative leverages the firm’s track record working with management teams and founders via our value-creation centric buy and build strategy, anchored by our in-house IT services team, Bertram Labs. Prior to Bertram, Bobby was an Analyst at R.W. Baird on the Industrials team. Prior to joining Baird, Bobby was the Manager, Data Analytics and Information Management at Irgens.
“Since founding Bertram in 2006, we have invested heavily in building a recognized origination effort that is completely aligned with our investment team, from deal sourcing through deal exit,” noted Jeff Drazan, Managing Partner at Bertram. “Paul and Bobby will help us continue to innovate our deal origination initiatives.”
