Altos Energy Partners is pleased to announce the engagement of Bryan Leavitt as an Executive-in-Residence to lead its new manufacturing investment strategy, which will focus on companies that design, manufacture, and fabricate equipment with significant exposure to energy markets. Altos is seeking to partner with companies generating revenues of $10 million to $100 million with the firm investing $10 million to $80 million through a combination of subordinated debt, preferred equity, and common equity.
“We’re excited about both the new investment emphasis as well as the seasoned executive leadership that Bryan brings to the firm,” said Ryan Franco, Managing Director at Altos. “He is uniquely qualified across all three energy sectors, domestically and internationally, and that experience gives Altos enhanced bandwidth for future platform investments and add-on acquisitions.”
Mr. Leavitt has nearly thirty years of leadership roles within the energy industry. Prior to Altos, Bryan was the Senior Vice President at PV Fluid Products, a privately-held Canadian company that manufactures power sections for the oilfield drilling market. He has significant experience working with private equity having served as President and CEO of Beta Holdings and Vice President and General Manager of PBV USA-Global Flow, portfolio companies of Corinthian Capital and SCF Partners, respectively. Prior to his private equity roles, Bryan was a Senior Manager in the Energy Practice of A.T. Kearney and worked both strategic and operational engagements for the firm with companies such as ChevronTexaco, BP, and Kerr-McGee. Before consulting, Bryan spent nine years with Baker Process Oil and Gas and was ultimately responsible for the combined regions of North America and Asia Pacific. Bryan started his career at Schlumberger as a Field Engineer and logged numerous open-hole wells in the San Joaquin Basin of California.
Bryan received his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Arizona State University and his MBA certificate from the University of Michigan Ross School of Business Executive Education. Bryan is a member of the Turnaround Management Organization and, in 2017, earned a Governance Fellowship with the National Association of Corporate Directors.
