Consultancy Standish To Seattle

Jan 29 2013 | 9:58am ET

Private equity consultancy Standish Management is expanding up the Pacific coast.

The seven-year-old San Francisco-based firm has opened an office in Seattle. The new base is Standish's fifth, and fourth on the West Coast. The firm already had offices in Los Angeles and Palo Alto in addition to San Francisco, and an East Coast base in Boston.

Standish, which also offers consulting services to venture capital, real estate and fund of funds firms, said that Trent Dawson would lead the new office. Dawson joins from Seattle-based VC firm Voyager Capital.

"As a Standish client, Voyager has seen first hand the tremendous value they bring to the table. They offer a level of experience and sophistication that most funds simply can’t leverage internally, in terms of both people and technology," Voyager's Erik Benson said. "Trent has a deep understanding of the intricacies and challenges associated with managing funds, and added to his experience working with Standish from the client side, he is a perfect fit for representing their brand in this market."
