Richard Kestenbaum |CONTRIBUTOR

I have been doing mergers and acquisitions for over 35 years and I specialize in the apparel, retail and consumer sectors. I am a co-founder and partner at Triangle Capital LLC. Before Triangle Capital, I was Managing Director at a boutique called Financo where I handled most of that firm’s apparel industry transactions. Before that, I was a Partner and First Vice President at Drexel Burnham Lambert where I co-ran a group of 14 professionals doing middle-market mergers and acquisitions. I have coauthored three books on finance and computer programming. I was formerly an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the graduate program of the Stern School of NYU. I have a BS in Accounting from NYU and an MBA in Finance from Harvard. I’m based in New York.

I cover retail, fashion, consumer behavior and consumer products.
