You’ve been with Paine since 2002. Which industries have you led deals in? I’ve led deals in the industrial space, including one in our second fund, which was an investment in an automotive manufacturing business. My primary area of focus has been in food and agribusiness. Deals have included Seminis and Advanta, both agricultural input companies in our second fund. In our third fund, we acquired Icicle Seafoods, which we still own, and is one of the largest harvesters and processers of salmon and other fish.
