Jul 18 2017 | 8:41pm ET

Pritzker Group’s private capital unit has named former Madison Dearborn executive Thomas Chadwick as a vice president on the group’s growing manufactured products team.

In his new role, Chadwick will help source and execute investments and work closely with the management teams of Pritzker Group Private Capital companies, the company said in a statement. He will be based in Chicago. 

Before joining Pritzger, Chadwick spent two years as a private equity associate for Madison Dearborn Partners, where he helped execute more than $7 billion in transactions. Beforehand, he was an investment banking analyst at Deutsche Bank Securities in their financial sponsors group.

Led by Michael Nelson, investment partner, and David Gau, operating partner, the manufactured products team focuses on investing in and operating companies in various industries including packaging, food and industrial components. Pritzker Group Private Capital as a whole acquires North America-based middle-market companies with leading positions in the manufactured products, services and health care sectors.

“We’re excited to have Thomas join our world-class team,” said Paul Carbone, managing partner of Pritzker Group Private Capital, in the statement. “Thomas’ experience and track record of success further strengthens our manufactured products team and helps position us for continued growth in the years to come.”

Chicago-based Pritzker Group was founded by in 1996 Tony and J.B. Pritzker. The company has three principal investment teams: Private Capital, which acquires and operates leading North America-based companies; Venture Capital, which provides early-stage and growth venture funding to technology companies throughout the United States; and Asset Management, which partners with top-performing investment managers across global public markets.
