Stonebridge Partners was founded in 1986 as an operations-oriented private equity firm focused on acquiring and successfully growing middle-market manufacturing businesses. Mike Bruno has served as Managing Partner since 1989, and works with a balanced team of financial and operating professionals with extensive industry experience. Taking an active, hands-on approach to value creation, Stonebridge Partners has invested $575 million of capital in 56 separate acquisitions.
The eight Partners and Principals at Stonebridge Partners bring over 130 years of collective private equity experience to the company, with an average of more than 12 years at the Firm. Everyone on the team possesses a strong background in finance and operations applied to lower middle market businesses. Each of the Firm’s Partners and Principals is passionate about his work, and committed to executing a consistent long-term strategy to satisfy the Firm’s investors and the management teams of portfolio companies.
In addition to the Firm’s Partners and Principals, Stonebridge is fortunate to have an experienced team of Industry Operating Advisors who are each well-known to Stonebridge from prior successful investments and business relationships. Many of these Industry Operating Advisors were CEOs of former Stonebridge portfolio companies, and continue to apply their industry expertise to the Firm’s current portfolio of companies. Stonebridge utilizes the Industry Operating Advisors in a variety of capacities, including active board roles, industry and market analyses, specific management assignments, and upfront investment diligence.
