Transition Capital was founded by Richard Kinlough, following an accomplished 30+ year senior-level career in leveraged lending and Private Equity. He brings extensive experience building successful corporate financial platforms in the Canadian and international mid-markets.

In the most recent six years, as National head of the Mid-Market Sponsors (PE) Group for a major Canadian bank, Richard has facilitated more than 100 successful Leveraged Buyouts (LBO) for Canadian mid-market businesses.

Richard is highly experienced working with private and public companies, financial institutions and PE firms across Canada and the US.  Throughout his 30+ year career, he has honed a deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing middle-market companies and owners.
