With its most recent investment in Designer Protein, LLC, Stockton Road Capital has now made three investments in the nutrition category in the past eighteen months. Beyond the commonality of nutrition, all three transactions have leveraged Stockton Road’s proprietary sourcing network, brand focus and Operating Partner relationships.
“I feel very lucky to be able to work with and support such great investors, managers and dynamic brands that have a special connection with their consumers”, said Joe Rhodes, Managing Partner of Stockton Road Capital. “We aren’t dedicated solely to nutrition, but it’s a very attractive space that we know a lot about and sometimes you just go with the flow.”
In addition to these investments, Joe Rhodes and Cyrill Siewert (now Chairman and CEO of Designer Protein) were the principal architects behind the successful build-up of Amerifit Brands, which was sold for $200 million in 2010. Amerifit owned a portfolio of consumer healthcare and nutrition brands.
Mr. Rhodes added, “What success we’ve had at Stockton Road, we owe to the support of our friends and partners in each one of these investments.”
