San Francisco-based Union Square Advisors, a leading technology-focused investment bank, has tapped former TriplePoint Capital managing director and president Dean Riskas as a partner.

TriplePoint is a well-known Silicon Valley venture debt provider.

“We are very excited that Dean is joining Union Square Advisors,” said Carter McClelland, executive chairman of the firm, in a statement. “Dean’s significant experience dealing with the venture capital community, his strong deal-making track record and broad, deep relationships with VCs—such as Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, New Enterprise Associates and Sequoia Capital—will make an important contribution to our core technology investment banking and capital raising business in the Valley.”

Union Square, founded in 2007, has announced 28 transactions since 2009 worth a total value of $3 billion. The firm, with offices in San Francisco and New York, serves technology companies through its mergers & acquisitions, private capital financing and IPO advisory services.
