Prior to joining Searchlight, Mr. Ring was Senior Vice President, Business Development at Heinz, where he successfully led the global expansion of the business in developed and emerging markets, while realigning the product portfolio against core competencies. Under Mr. Ring’s leadership, Heinz was recognized as one of the most creative, proactive and successful corporate dealmakers.
