Private Equity Placement Agent Helix Expands Its Roster

Oct 16 2007 | 5:02am ET

Helix Associates, the private equity fund placement agent division of Jefferies Group, has added managing directors Stephen Gray and Robert Rivett to its roster.

Gray and Rivett will be responsible for expanding Helix's North American activities for fund sponsors and limited partners. Gray will join a New York-based team that includes managing directors Mark Hallock, Philip Kemp and Wanda Felton. Rivett will be based in San Francisco and will focus on establishing a west coast presence for Helix.

Previously, Gray was a partner at Gateway Global Partners, an adviser to the Cambridge Gateway Fund, a technology-focused venture capital fund. Rivett most recently served as co-head of the private fund group of Credit Suisse following the acquisition of Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette, where he was a founding partner and co-head of the private fund group.

“Steve's extensive private equity experience and relationships in the U.S. and U.K. as a general partner and placement agent, as well as Bob's expertise, acumen and established profile in private equity, should further strengthen Helix in North America,” said Hallock.
