Mainsheet OP, which provides operating partner services, announced today that Michael Hejtmanek has joined the company as Partner. Hejtmanek, formerly of Hasselblad Inc., is a highly experienced chief executive with a track record of identifying and delivering value at privately-owned mid-market companies.
“I am delighted that Michael is joining Mainsheet OP and enabling growth in our fractional Operating Partner model,” said Simon Jones, founder and CEO of Mainsheet OP. “Michael has a proven track record as CEO of a privately owned international enterprise but, just as important, he clearly has the social intelligence skills required to deliver value as an Operating Partner for our clients.”
“Working across portfolio companies at several private equity firms is exactly the challenge I have been looking for,” said Hejtmanek. “The breadth and depth of exposure will give me the ability to provide best-in-class advisory services to Mainsheet OP’s client base – from providing investment theses and due diligence, to management advisory services throughout a portfolio company’s ownership lifecycle. I’m excited to be working with a renowned expert such as Simon and am confident that together, we have the best matched skillset to create value and shareholder returns for private equity firms.”
Prior to joining Mainsheet OP, Hejtmanek spent six years as CEO and president of Hasselblad Inc., transforming the 80-year-old, world-class camera manufacturer for the 21st century. Hejtmanek also ran a variety of technology, software, security, and distribution companies in his career. He is a restructuring specialist who is known primarily for sales reorganization, sales channel development, and the application of technologies and software to optimize every aspect of an organization.
