Troeller Quits Private Equity Firm VSS For Fir Tree

Apr 27 2012 | 3:55am ET

Scott Troeller has resigned from private equity firm Veronis Suhler Stevenson to join a hedge fund.

Troeller's exit was announced by Cambium Learning Group, a VSS portfolio company that Troeller served as chairman. Cambium revealed both his resignation from its own board and from VSS, where he had been a partner, on April 20.

Troeller's last day at VSS, which he joined in 1996, is today. He will join Fir Tree Partners, Dow Jones LBO Wire reports.

While Cambium said in its filing that "Mr. Troeller’s decision to submit his resignation was not the result of any disagreement with the company on any matter relating to the company’s operations, policies or practices," VSS managing partner Jeffrey Stevenson told LBO Wire that his and Troeller's paths had "diverged."
