Sachi Gahan has been named head of Glocap's newly combined venture-capital and private-equity practices, the New York-based executive search firm announced today.
Gahan, 39, has also been promoted to the five member management committee. She will be based in San Francisco. Previously she was a managing director in the venture capital practice. The private-equity group had been run by Glocap co-founder and partner Brian Korb. Gahan will take over the merged groups and will report to CEO Adam Zoia. Korb will continue to work with the combined groups.
Under Gahan's stewardship, the firm placed forty investment professionals at venture capital, growth equity and tech buyout firms across the country in 2010. She focused on placing partners and associates in consumer Internet and greentech positions.
Gahan has worked at the firm for three years. Prior to joining Glocap, she was a principal at venture capital firms in San Francisco and Austin, Texas. She has also worked in the office of the chairman at Dell.
"Glocap's Venture Capital practice has grown considerably since Sachi joined the firm three years ago, despite the recent economic downturn," Zoia said in a statement. "I am delighted to welcome Sachi to the firm's management committee, which will benefit from her experience in corporate strategy, venture capital, and executive recruiting."
Gahan attended Harvard and Radcliffe colleges for her bachelor's degree and received an MBA from Harvard Business School.
