Vector Capital has hired Anupam Banerjee as a managing director and head of value creation.
Mr. Banerjee will work with the firm’s investment team to underwrite new investments and assist portfolio companies to develop and execute go-to-market strategies, drive growth, and improve profitability.
Prior to joining Vector, Mr. Banerjee was a partner at McKinsey & Company where he worked on large-scale B2B sales and marketing assignments for multi-national software, hardware, services, and telecom clients.
“Vector Capital’s value creation team is a fundamental element of our approach to driving operational improvement across the portfolio,” said Alex Slusky, a managing director and chief investment officer at Vector. “In Anupam, we have added a capable leader with a proven track record of improving global technology businesses and a deep understanding of our core sectors. Vector has had a very active 2020, and we look forward to leveraging Anupam’s expertise as we identify compelling investment opportunities and lead business transformations that deliver strong outcomes for our investors.”
“Vector Capital has built an impressive 23-year track record of investing in and transforming technology businesses and I am thrilled to be joining its leadership team of experienced investors, operators, and executives,” said Mr. Banerjee. “I look forward to leading Vector’s value creation team and driving value across its portfolio.”
Prior to joining McKinsey in 2005, Mr. Banerjee held positions at Lucent Technologies’ Bell Labs and Calix Networks, a provider of IT services.
Vector Capital invests in spinouts, buyouts and recapitalizations of private or public technology businesses. In October, the firm acquired MarkLogic, a San Carlos, California-based provider of enterprise data integration and data management services.
Vector has more than $3 billion of capital under management and is headquartered in San Francisco.
