Irving Place Capital, a leading middle market institutional private equity firm, announced that it has appointed Peter Boneparth as a Senior Advisor with a focus on the retail and apparel sectors.

Previously, Mr. Boneparth served as CEO of Jones Moderate Division and also was CEO, president and a board member of McNaughton Apparel Group.

“I am thrilled to be part of Irving Place Capital,” commented Mr. Boneparth. “The firm has a successful history of partnering with management teams and corporations to build brands, identify and integrate acquisitions, and execute other strategic and operational initiatives in retail and apparel. I look forward to using my knowledge and experience in those sectors to contribute to the firm's efforts.”

“Peter brings deep experience and a strong track record of building companies in the retail and apparel industries,” said Rick Perkal, a Senior Managing Director of Irving Place Capital. “I am confident that he will be a valuable addition to our team.”

Previously Mr. Boneparth held positions in investment banking and practiced law with a private firm. He currently sits on the boards of Kohl's Corp. and JetBlue Airways Corp. Mr. Boneparth is a graduate of the University of North Carolina and received his J.D. from the University of Virginia.
