Patina Solutions, which fills talent gaps at companies with consultants, interim executives, and permanent executives, has brought aboard Joseph G. Solari III as managing director-private equity solutions to expand its business with New York and other East Coast private equity shops.
Pointing to Patina Solutions’s network of more than 26,000 seasoned executives ready for assignments on short notice, Solari said he plans to help private equity firms find “those needle-in-a-haystack-type [executives] who can be extraordinary helpful” in both pre-deal due diligence and post-deal execution.
From 2013 to 2019 Solari (pictured) worked at lower-middle-market specialist Saugatuck Capital Company of Shelton, Connecticut. Most recently he served as managing director and partner. Along with his role at Patina Solutions, Solari serves as founder and partner at start-up Greenwich Private Investments. The private investment vehicle makes debt and equity investments in companies in a variety of industries.
