Private Equity Firm SVB Expands Funds Team

Oct 12 2007 | 5:39am ET

SVB Capital Partners, the private equity arm of SVB Financial Group, has hired two senior members to expand its funds team. John Dominguez and Vincent Williams will be based in the firm’s Palo Alto, Calif., office.

Dominguez joins the funds management team to help broaden the firm's investment capabilities in later-stage private equity, growth capital and buyouts. Previously, he served as manager of the private equity group Hall Capital Management, covering venture capital, private equity and leveraged buyout investments.

Williams is responsible for product development and fund raising in the mid- to large-size institutional markets. He will focus primarily on corporate and public pension plans. Most recently, Williams was senior vice president and managing director of institutional sales for Northern Trust Global Investments in Chicago where he was responsible for developing and implementing the company's business strategy within the public and corporate marketplace for North America.

"Vincent and John bring years of experience in funds management and deep relationships with institutional investors to our team,” said Mark MacLennan, president of SVB Capital. “Together, we will diversify our venture capital and private equity products as well as our LP relationships domestically and internationally."
