This week, we officially announced the addition of Katie Marchetti as Managing Director, a vital leadership role for our expanding firm. Katie is a Nashville native (a rare breed these days!), and joins us from Gerson Lehrman Group (GLG) where she most recently served as Chief of Staff, coordinating the execution of strategic priorities with senior staff across the business. Prior to that role, she ran the firm’s Credit and Macro segments for all of Europe, Middle East and Africa from their London office. An attorney by trade, she previously practiced U.S. Securities Law within Herbert Smith Freehills Capital Markets team.
We are fortunate that BluWave has exponentially grown since inception, and continues to be a trusted resource for over 350 private equity funds, and Katie is going to play an integral role in taking us through our next growth phase—exacting her skills as both an organizational leader and a solutions-oriented thinker.
In her own words:
“Joining BluWave was an important decision for me both personally and professionally. Not only did my family and I decide to move ‘home’, but I get to be part of a company that is at a true growth inflection point—and one that is ultimately changing the way business in the private equity world is done. What Sean and his team have built is really remarkable, and I’m excited to be part of realizing their ultimate vision.”
As Managing Director, she will initially focus on growth strategy and corporate development, both with new accounts and current clients—helping nurture potential opportunities to maximize value for clients. Longer term, her goal is to elevate BluWave as a key solution and resource for the private equity sector, portfolio companies, and any business that is going through a transformation or looking to create value and drive growth.
We are looking forward to this next phase for BluWave and remain grateful for our talented team members, service providers, and clients across the globe.
