Miami, FL – (February 16, 2016) Trivest Partners (“Trivest” or the “Firm”), a Miami-based private equity firm, is pleased to announce that Greg Baty joined the Firm this month as a Partner. Most recently, Greg was a Principal at Hamilton Lane, a global private equity management firm with approximately $240 billion in total assets under management and supervision, where he managed the firm’s South Florida office.
Over the past decade, Trivest has asserted its position as the partner of choice for Founder/Family owned businesses across North America. With that recognition, the Firm continues to see an ever increasing number of investment opportunities from business brokers, lawyers, accountants and others. A natural evolution of the Firm’s development and expansion will be investing across a wide spectrum of opportunities, including control, non-control and growth investments. Given Greg’s vast experience, he will lead Trivest’s non-control and growth efforts.
Troy D. Templeton, Trivest’s Managing Partner, said, “Pursuing growth and non-control investments will allow us to capitalize on Trivest’s significant and previously untapped deal flow in this area. We are thrilled to have an investor of Greg’s caliber leading this brand extension and look forward to the significant benefits his addition will bring to our investors and Firm.”
In 2009, the Florida State Board of Administration selected Hamilton Lane as the General Partner of the Florida Growth Fund (FGF). Under Greg’s leadership, the FGF was launched as a $250 million investment vehicle focused on Florida private equity opportunities. After successfully investing this initial $250 million, Greg was entrusted with two subsequent allocations of $250 million. In total, under Greg’s leadership, the FGF made 30 direct investments in operating companies. Prior to Hamilton Lane, Greg held investment positions in both private equity and venture finance as well as operating roles within multi-unit retail businesses. Greg also spent nine years as a professional football player in the National Football League. He received both an undergraduate and master’s degree from Stanford University.
Greg noted, “I am excited to join the Trivest team. The Firm has built the definitive brand in private equity for founder and family owned businesses and now we will use the decades of our combined expertise to capitalize on non-control and growth opportunities.”
Trivest Partners is a private investment firm that focuses on partnering with founder/family owned businesses in the United States and Canada. Since its founding in 1981, Trivest has completed more than 225 transactions, totaling in excess of $5.5 billion in value. For additional information, please visit www.trivest.com.
