Technology Crossover Ventures (TCV), a leading provider of growth equity for premier technology companies, announced today that Nathan Sanders has joined the firm as a general partner and head of investor relations (IR). Sanders joins TCV from global investment firm Bain Capital.
In his role at TCV, Sanders will oversee investor relations, ensuring that limited partners (LPs) are connected and engaged with TCV’s team and investment portfolio, as well as spearheading the firm’s strategy and execution around fundraising. TCV investors include public and private pension funds from North America, Europe and Asia, university endowments, financial institutions, family offices, and technology entrepreneurs.
“The private equity landscape has evolved to the point where simply having a great track record is no longer enough. Today, LPs expect—and deserve—a much deeper relationship with their core general partners, which requires a robust investor relations function,” said Jake Reynolds, a TCV general partner. “We are excited about the capabilities Nathan brings to TCV, and he will play a strategic role in our commitment to ensuring that our investors feel as good about their IR engagement as they do about their investment returns.”
Prior to joining TCV, Sanders was a director at Bain Capital. During his eight years at Bain, he served in multiple roles: both on the private equity investment team evaluating new deals and working with portfolio companies, and also on the investor relations team. Previously Nathan was an associate principal at McKinsey & Company Palo Alto where he was a leader in its high-tech practice, serving technology clients on a range of strategy and finance-related priorities. In the tech industry since 1994, he held positions at Accenture as well as a sales and marketing role at a startup prior to joining McKinsey. Nathan received an MBA with distinction from Harvard Business School and a BS in MIS and Entrepreneurship from the University of Arizona.
“Over the past two decades, TCV has built a focused and differentiated investment platform in the technology growth equity space, with a long track record of delivering top returns for investors,” said Sanders. “I'm thrilled to be joining the world-class TCV team and will bring the same level of quality and attention to investor relations that exists on the investment team. I look forward to fostering a new level of communications and collaboration in engaging with our LPs as true partners.”
