Pantheon makes senior US hire

Thursday, November 08, 2018
Opalesque Industry Update - Pantheon has hired Jeff Wright as Principal in the Client Service team, focused on Pantheon's U.S. institutional client markets.

"I would like to extend a warm welcome to Jeff, who is a seasoned professional and brings many years of client relationship management experience with him through senior roles at Wilshire Private Markets as well as at HarbourVest Partners. He will further enhance our strong client relationship management team here in the U.S.," commented Susan Long McAndrews, Partner and member of Pantheon's Global Partnership Board.

Pantheon continues to expand globally with the appointment in the year to date of 58 professionals across teams and offices worldwide. The firm's AUM has risen to $42.3 billion1, adding around $5.5 billion over the last twelve months, with new clients committing significant capital across Pantheon's investment strategies through both commingled offerings and separate accounts. Outside of the U.S., Pantheon opened an office in Tokyo in the summer to service our expanding business in Japan and has appointed new local personnel in each of our Asia offices: Tokyo, Seoul and Hong Kong.

"We're busier than we've ever been across the board," commented Susan Long McAndrews. "It's testament to our commitment to building durable partnerships with our clients and GPs that our business, now in its fourth decade, is attracting strong global support for our services and strategies."
