Private equity firm Hellman & Friedman has named Hunter Philbrick, Judd Sher, and Tarim Wasim managing directors.

Philbrick joined Hellman & Friedman in 2003 in the firm’s San Francisco office and relocated to New York in 2005 to help build the New York office. He primarily focuses on healthcare and insurance investments and currently serves on the boards of Pharmaceutical Product Development, Inc. and Sedgwick.

Sher joined Hellman & Friedman last year as chief financial officer. He brings over 13 years of experience, most recently as a principal in Deloitte’s M&A Transaction Services Group, and is responsible for all finance, accounting, and tax matters at the firm.

Wasim joined the firm in 2005 in the San Francisco office. He primarily focuses on digital media, internet, and business services efforts and currently serves on the board of Internet Brands.

In addition, Hellman & Friedman announced the promotions of Philip Sternheimer to director and Stephen Ensley to principal.

“These promotions recognize the outstanding contributions all of these individuals have made to Hellman & Friedman,” said Philip Hammarskjold, chief executive officer. “We look forward to their continued success at the firm.”

Hellman & Friedman also announced the continued expansion of its team with three new appointments. Philip Meicler and Suzanne Kim join as principals and Rachel Wilson joins as associate counsel.

The firm is also looking to add additional principal level investment professionals this year for both its New York and San Francisco offices.
