Ripplewood Holdings LLC, a New York based private-equity firm. Their CEO is Timothy C. Collins.
Collins, "is kind of a paradox -- by turns shrewd dealmaker and sunny idealist. He grew up in the American state of Kentucky -- Ripplewood is named after his family's tobacco farm -- worked as businessman and banker for a few years, then in 1988 checked out of the business world to work at a refugee camp in Sudan for a year."
