Pantheon’s Brett Johnson jumps to Industrial Growth

Brett Johnson, former managing director at Pantheon, has joined Industrial Growth Partners.

Calls to Johnson at IGP went to his voicemail. Johnson’s LinkedIn page said he is CFO of Industrial Growth but it doesn’t specify when in 2017 he joined.

Pantheon is a fund-of-funds that invests in private equity, infrastructure and real assets. Johnson left Pantheon in 2016, after 11 years at the firm, his LinkedIn page said.

Industrial Growth, San Francisco, is a lower-middle-market PE firm targeting the industrial sector. This year, IGP has acquired Fast-Lok, Royal Die & Stamping and IOTA as well as add-on Nomos Systems Inc.

The firm closed its fifth fund on $800 million in May, Preqin said. IGP wrapped up Industrial Growth Partners IV LP in 2011 with $600 million in commitments.

Executives for Pantheon and IGP could not be reached for comment.
