After graduating from Middlebury College, Ted Virtue took an entry-level position at Bankers Trust. He then moved to Drexel Burnham Lambert, where he ran the High Yield Paper department. He later returned to Bankers Trust to help build out their investment bank. When Bankers Trust was acquired by Deutsche Bank, Ted decided it was time to try something more entrepreneurial. He became the Chief Executive of DB Capital Partners. Later, he and his colleagues bought out their portfolio and founded MidOcean Partners, a midmarket private equity firm managing investments for over 75 companies with over $2.5 BN under management. Virtue has served on boards including Bushnell, Vitaquest Inc., Strayer Corporation and Noveon. He is also a trustee of Middlebury College and Brunswick School, as well as the Chairman of Youth, I.N.C., a non-profit serving over 600,000 underprivileged children in New York City.
