Clayton, Dubilier & Rice, a private investment firm, has appointed David Winokur as a partner with the firm.

Going forward, Winokur will work to build the firm’s financial services vertical and will source and evaluate investments within insurance, wealth & retirement services, banking & credit, and fintech sectors. In his time before joining CD&R, Winokur served as a managing director at TowerBrook Capital Partners where he led financial services operations.

“We are pleased to welcome David to the team to lead our new financial services vertical which represents a natural extension of our recent financial services investment activity, including Tranzact, Capco, and Vialto,” said Rick Schnall, co-President. “Financial services is an exciting industry undergoing significant reshaping driven by the convergence of regulatory and technology change.  We believe David’s deep experience leading transactions across the financial services sector and his broad industry network will be a great asset as we launch the vertical.”
