Rocket Dog will be sold by its current owner, New York Transit, to Golden Gate Capital and Circle Peak Capital for an undisclosed amount. The management of this hot American footwear brand, which is led by Mike Womack, president and chief executive, hopes the new financial backing will help to grow the brand’s presence globally. Rocket Dog, which recently concluded a licensing deal with Elan Polo, is distributed in Europe by the UK-based agency of Tony Greenfield, which has started to make investments in sales personnel on the continent to broaden the circle of European clients.
