Founded in 2003, RK Capital Partners is a leading provider of deal origination services. Our firm brings senior level transaction experience to every deal and offers a personalized approach not available from most other groups.
The firm was founded by Randall Katz, who previously led the business development efforts for a leading management consulting and financial advisory firm, in addition to working in the Corporate Banking Group at Bank of America in Atlanta and Washington, DC. While at Bank of America, Mr. Katz worked with clients including The Home Depot and The Coca-Cola Company.
Mr. Katz “accidentally” founded RKCP at the request of investment firms which requested his assistance with their deal origination efforts. Randall thought the projects were a one-time occurrence, however, he soon realized that he enjoyed the personal aspects of dealmaking more than “just crunching numbers”.
Randall decided to pursue deal origination full-time in 2005 and has successfully originated numerous platform and add-on transactions across many industries including niche manufacturing, value-added distribution, business services and healthcare.
Mr. Katz received his Bachelor of Arts from Washington University in St. Louis in 1997 and attended Pace Academy in Atlanta. Mr. Katz and his wife, Erica, live in Atlanta with their 3 children.
