“Organic growth and market leadership are strong evidence of the success of an enterprise.”

Michael J. Orend

Investment Professional Chicago



15 years in private equity, past 8 at RLH

First job: computer hardware sales (back when hardware was a new idea)

Business perspective: There is real satisfaction in helping smart, motivated entrepreneurs build their business and in seeing the benefits to founders and employees.

Quote: Arthur Rubinstein said: “If you love life, it will love you back.” Which is why, when Mike’s not in the office, he’s with his two daughters, or riding bikes, playing golf, or basketball.

Undergrad degree from UVA but actually a Wolverine at heart because the first two years were at Michigan.
