martinwolf  Executive Perspective
Michael Duran,  Millstein & Co.

October's issue of martinwolf Executive Perspective features Michael Duran, Partner at Millstein & Co. Michael is a veteran private equity investor and leads Millstein's principal investing activities. Previously, he was a Managing Director and member of the investment committee at Ripplewood Holdings, where he executed several successful domestic and international control investments across multiple industries. 

In the interview, Michael talks about what led him to transition from investment banking to private equity, and how Millstein evaluates potential investments. He provides a behind the scenes look at Millstein's purchase of martinwolf client DLT Solutions earlier this year, detailing what attracted them to the company and what they have in store for the company going forward.

Along the way, Michael looks at the opportunities for IT companies operating in the government space, current market conditions and their impacts on Millstein's investment practice, and finally what companies can do to position themselves for investment from a private equity firm.
