September 12, 2016, 07:31 AM

FocalPoint Partners, LLC, a leading middle-market investment bank, announced the addition of Stephen Wrobel, Director of Business Development, to source new business opportunities for the firm. Wrobel becomes the latest addition to FocalPoint's growing team; earlier this year the firm announced the hiring of three Managing Directors, Robert Woolway, Stan Koss, and Richard Phillips.

Prior to joining FocalPoint, Wrobel worked for Z Capital Partners, a special situations private equity firm, in addition to several commercial lenders including the Royal Bank of Scotland and Fifth Third Bank.  He brings more than two decades of experience in private equity, leveraged finance, special situations, debt restructuring, and commercial banking.  During his career, Wrobel has worked with middle-market companies across a wide range of industries including consumer products, aerospace, transportation, media and technology, and healthcare.  Wrobel holds a B.S. in Economics from Northern Illinois University and an M.B.A. from the Keller School of Management.
"I am very excited to join such a strong group," said Wrobel.  "FocalPoint's reputation in the middle market is exceptional, as the firm has the depth, experience and multi-disciplinary service offering that allows clients to take advantage of a broad array of alternatives."

"Stephen's background as a senior deal professional in private equity and commercial banking provides him a unique perspective in the middle market, and his experience working on diverse transaction types across a variety of sectors aligns perfectly with the FocalPoint platform," said Managing Director Thomas Mills.

Rajesh Sood, Managing Partner added, "We are excited with the continued expansion of the firm and the Chicago office, which has grown significantly since we opened the office five years ago.  Having full service offices in both Los Angeles and Chicago provides us easy access to the entire country."

FocalPoint is an independent investment bank, specializing in mergers and acquisitions, private placements (both debt and equity), financial restructurings, and special situation transactions.  With offices in Los Angeles and Chicago, the firm serves middle market clients throughout the U.S.  Since its inception in 2002, FocalPoint has completed approximately $5 billion in transactions.
