Mirus Capital Advisors Adds Healthcare Expert to Investment Banking Team

Patrick-WestMirus Capital Advisors today announced the hiring of Patrick West as a partner with the firm.  The hiring of Mr. West furthers the firm’s initiatives in the active healthcare market.

“We are very excited to have Patrick join our team,” said Alan Fullerton, Mirus Capital Advisors partner. “His distinguished career as an executive with a Fortune 500 med-tech leader, successful entrepreneurial experience and track record as an advisor and board member provide unique insight and an informed ability to negotiate the deal process for Mirus clients.”

Prior to joining Mirus Capital Advisors, Mr. West was an executive at Stryker Corporation where he participated in numerous M&A and JV negotiations. Mr. West left Stryker in 2002 to co-found a group of companies with his brother in the oil and gas industry, which he led as CEO through exit in 2009 to Cameron International at best-in-industry multiples.  Subsequent to this exit, he returned to the medical technology space where he has held a number of non-executive board positions bringing a keen focus on maximizing enterprise and ultimately exit value.

“Patrick was instrumental to our company first as an advisor and ultimately as a member of our Board,” said Andrew Lynn, former CEO and founder of Orthomimetrics. “His ability to link board- and executive-level strategy with on-the-ground realities of the commercial orthopedics space was crucial as we evaluated strategic buyers and secured a positive return for our shareholders in one of the most difficult markets in recent history.”

Mr. West holds a bachelor’s degree from DePauw University and has participated in the executive management training program at Harvard Business School.
