Sedge Dienst
Sedge Dienst is co-founding Partner of the San Francisco-based private equity firm KCA Partners, Ltd., a private equity firm with a strong operating focus in the small-company end of the buyout industry. He has held the CEO role in six companies, and taken active board roles in others across a range of industries over the past 24 years. The firm's focus on improving performance leads him to spend much of his time on building global supplier networks and sales partnerships. Previously, he led a 40-year old aircraft parts company to build a global customer base in military and commercial aircraft manufacturers. His early career was in consumer products marketing with Carnation Company and Nestle, and management consulting at Booz, Allen & Hamilton.

Sedge Dienst, Partner
Sedge Dienst co-founded KCA in 1993 with PJ Nora. Sedge has taken on roles as both board-level advisor and hands-on CEO in KCA portfolio companies to facilitate their growth. In KCA's first acquisition, Sedge became CEO of Price Outdoor Media of Missouri to lead a transformation of the company's sales model, pricing and strategy. This led to a rapid growth in revenues and profit, and an exit to a strategic buyer in the next year. Sedge also held the chief executive roles in the plastics processing (Trico Plastics and US Thermoplastics) platform as an interim stage to build a sustaining management team for the combined entity. In the 13-year build-up of Carex Health Brands, which combined 6 acquired businesses to become the leading branded home healthcare equipment company in mass retail, Sedge performed as CEO at certain phases, and at other times as board advisor. The company was sold in 2010, eight times the size of the initially acquired platform company, for a significant multiple of invested equity. Mr. Dienst sits on the boards of all KCA portfolio companies, focusing on strategy development, operational improvements and acquisitions.
Previously, Mr. Dienst was president and CEO of Western Sky Industries, where he overhauled the marketing and operations of this aircraft and automotive parts manufacturer. Results included the development of new products with Boeing's new airplane group's 777 design-build teams, improved global market penetration including Airbus' A330/340 widebodies and significant new quality system approvals. In addition, he negotiated a new union contract that resulted in improved productivity and quality.
Earlier, Mr. Dienst was a strategy consultant at Booz, Allen & Hamilton, serving clients in consumer packaged goods and a variety of other industries. He also held several product management positions with Carnation Company and Nestlé.
Mr. Dienst holds an M.B.A. with distinction from the Harvard Business School and a bachelor's degree with honors in Managerial Economics from the University of California at Davis.
