“Glen brings a wealth of private equity experience to Imperial Capital,” said Jeff Rosenthal, co-founder and Managing Partner. “As we look to deploy the nearly $300 million we recently raised in our Fund V, we are delighted to welcome Glen to our focused deal team.”
Mr. Silvestri joins Imperial Capital after nearly 13 years with the private equity group of Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan at a time when the invested assets grew 10-fold. He has a successful track record of investments in the business services, information technology and media space, which added over $1 billion in value for Teachers. His most recent role at Teachers was as Head of Telecom, Media, Technology and Energy & Power investing, where he also chaired the investment committee during some of the group’s most successful years.
