He is responsible for performing due diligence and managing correspondence with legal counsel, other professionals and company management. In addition, Solow’s previous commercial banking experience allows him to effectively manage the financing process for transactions.

Prior to joining NEP in 2003, Solow worked for four years for an asset-based lender focusing on senior financing facilities for middle-market companies. He then was employed by First Union Securities in its Financial Sponsor Coverage Group, where he prepared detailed analyses of numerous financial sponsors and developed financing and acquisition ideas for private equity clients.
