“We believe technology will be increasingly critical to private equity investing, both as an attractive investment arena and as a significant lever for value creation in generalist portfolios,” said Michael Choe, Charlesbank CEO. “Hiren brings to Charlesbank deep sector experience and a proven track record of investing successfully over two decades, as well as intellectual capital that will be invaluable to our activities as a firm. We are delighted to welcome him to the Charlesbank partnership.”

Ms. DeLaite will lead talent development efforts across the Charlesbank portfolio. She joins the firm from Green Peak Partners, where she was a partner leading human capital and talent efforts, including helping private equity clients improve hiring outcomes and develop leadership strategies. Earlier, she spent time at The Boston Consulting Group and Lehman Brothers. Ms. DeLaite has a BA in economics from Columbia University and an MBA from Harvard.

“Recognizing the important role high-performing executives play in driving portfolio value and growing a business, we are thrilled to have Camille join the team. She brings deep talent management and organizational alignment experience that will help us accelerate portfolio equity value creation,” said Charlesbank Managing Director Sam Bartlett. “We look forward to her contributions and welcome her to this role and our firm.”
