Knowledge Investment Partners has hired Wall Street analyst Howard Block as a partner.

Block's resume include a stint with Robertson Stephens, a boutique investment bank in San Francisco, where he established the research practice in education services.

He subsequently joined Bank of America and, since leaving, has served as a strategic advisor to several postsecondary education companies and joined the board of three education companies.

"Howard is a perfect fit for KIP," said Robert Daugherty, KIP’s chairman. "His understanding of where the education industry has been, and his insights into where the sector is going, are very valuable.”

KIP was established in 2002 and invests in the education sector via its private equity and hedge fund vehicles.
