Bruce Baumgarn

I like learning about different businesses, evaluating opportunities and developing creative alternatives for existing and prospective business owners. I am also interested in learning what business owners view as an ideal situation for themselves and their plans to achieve it.

Bruce provides guidance for Platinum’s turnaround equity fund investments. He brings in excess of 35 years of experience in banking, private equity management and business ownership to Platinum Group. He sits on several boards including a Des Moines bank, a $200-million Des Moines manufacturing corporation, and the Investment Committee for Platinum Group's funds.

Bruce and his wife Barb have been married over 37 years and have three daughters, two of whom are married, and two grandchildren. Bruce enjoys spending time with his grandchildren, boating, outdoor activities and an annual stay in St. Thomas.
