“We are defined as much by our values as by our successes.”

Rob Zielinski

Investment Professional Los Angeles



Over two decades of private equity experience, with (to our good fortune) the vast majority of it as part of the RLH team.

Portfolio companies: Rob has broad sector experience, with an emphasis on healthcare. His current and past Board engagements include Avella Specialty Pharmacy, The Chartis Group, Inspirage, Utegration, ClearView Healthcare Partners, Bluewolf Group, Creative Circle, and ABBConcise Optical.

Passion for Philanthropy: Rob and his wife devote considerable time and resources to giving back, especially in the areas of healthcare for children and educational opportunity for disadvantaged youth. Rob is both a Board member and a Trustee of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, the first and largest pediatric hospital in Southern California. He and his wife are also members of the Advisory Board of the Riordan Programs at UCLA, a group of pioneering initiatives that help high school students, college students, and recent college graduates from under-served communities to prepare for careers in management through education, mentorship and professional development. Rob is a frequent speaker and mentor to the students enrolled at all three levels of the Riordan Programs.

Favorite Mascot: Especially at NCAA basketball tournament time, Sparty from his alma mater, Michigan State. But if the University of Chicago (home of his MBA) ever fields a competitive Division I team, he’ll be cheering for the Maroons too.

Out of the office: Rob’s son is doing his thing as a grad student in Chicago while Rob and his wife are busy as the doting parents to two young girls who are in their adorable phase.
