Crosspoint Capital Partners, a private equity investment firm focused on cybersecurity, privacy and infrastructure software markets, has hired Laura Grattan and Dan Stanko to the firm as managing directors where they will help lead the firm’s investing efforts across its focus industries.
Grattan, based in Boston, brings more than 15 years of investment experience, most recently working at Thomas H. Lee Partners. As a managing director, she was responsible for leading buyout and growth transactions in the technology and healthcare IT industries.
Stanko, based in Menlo Park, was most recently a partner at HGGC, where he was responsible for driving new and existing investment opportunities, with a particular focus on software.
“Crosspoint is thrilled to welcome Laura and Dan to our growing team,” said Ian Loring, managing partner of Crosspoint. “Both are terrific investors and culture carriers that will bring great leadership to Crosspoint. Furthermore, both Laura and Dan have been known to the principals of Crosspoint for some time, which will allow for a seamless integration with the rest of the team.”
“We believe the combination of investment, sector and deep operating expertise represents a differentiated approach to private equity investing,” said Steve Luczo, managing partner of Crosspoint. “We are excited to continue to build the team with Dan and Laura.”
Grattan and Stanko join Crosspoint on the heels of its fourth investment out of Crosspoint Fund I. Recent investments include Forescout Technologies Inc., Cyware, ExtraHop and Everseen.
