- One Equity Partners has promoted a longtime insider to a leadership role, as founder Dick Cashin steps back from day-to-day operations at the middle-market focused private equity firm.

One Equity named Greg Belinfanti, a 17-year veteran at the firm, to the role of president, according to a statement seen by Reuters on Tuesday. Cashin will continue in his role as chairman of the buyout firm, which was spun out of JPMorgan Chase JPM.N in 2015.

While founder Cashin will continue to play an active role, including with the firm's investments, Belinfanti has now been tasked with the responsibility of leading the firm's day-to-day operations.

"We talked about (succession) for some time and, over the last several years, we've dealt with it with increasing responsibility (and) increasing visibility," said Belinfanti in an interview.

"Dick's not stepping aside, and he's incredibly engaged and active on all aspects of the firm, so (in) our view this is evolutionary and not revolutionary," he added.

Belinfanti has been instrumental in many of One Equity's healthcare transactions since joining the firm from Lehman Brothers in 2006, and currently sits on the boards of portfolio companies including home-healthcare equipment provider AdaptHealth and healthcare facilities operator Ernest Health.

Focused on investments in the healthcare, industrials and technology sectors, the New York-based firm was originally founded in 2001 by Cashin as the private equity arm of Bank One, before JP Morgan acquired the bank in 2004.

One Equity has completed more than 300 transactions since its inception and also has offices in Chicago, Frankfurt and Amsterdam. It closed its latest flagship fund in 2022 after raising $2.75 billion.
