Steven Liff, senior managing director and head of private equity in North America at Sun Capital. “Her relationships in the tech community and proven expertise will be highly valuable as we continue to build on our past technology experience and strengthen our focus on opportunities in this vertical, just as we have successfully done in healthcare over the past few years.”
“Sun’s strong operational focus and its ability to elevate company performance have been hallmarks throughout the firm’s history,” said de Saint-Agnan. “Bringing these skills to the technology sector is an exciting opportunity.”
