Resilience hires CFO/CCO

The Cleveland-based mid-market firm has brought on industry veteran Theodore Laufik and McKinsey & Co partner Rob Northrop to bolster its operations team.

Lower mid-market firm Resilience Capital Partners has appointed Theodore Laufik as chief financial officer, according to a statement from the firm. Laufik will also take on the role of chief compliance officer.

Laufik, who has more than 25 years' experience in the private equity industry, was chief financial officer at healthcare venture capital firm Foundation Medical Partners prior to joining Resilience.

Before his work at Foundation Laufik was responsible for deal structuring, investor relations, financial reporting, and other administrative functions at lower mid-market firm Morgenthaler.

“[Laufik’s] experience in both private equity administration and investor relations positions us very well as we continue to focus on our long term growth plans,” said Bassem Mansour, co-chief executive of Resilience, in a statement.

The firm was unavailable at press time to confirm who Laufik is replacing or to provide further details on Laufik’s appointment.

The Cleveland-based firm has also appointed former McKinsey & Co associate partner, Rob Northrop, as senior vice president of the firm’s operations team.

Northrop’s focus will be on providing operational support to Resilience’s portfolio companies as well as helping implement “value creation” plans, according to a statement from the firm.

Cleveland-based Resilience invests in niche-oriented manufacturing, distribution and business service companies with $25 million to $250 million in revenues.
