has left Apax Partners, where she had been a New York-based partner in the firm’s retail and consumer group. Her future plans are unknown, although one possibility is that she could join former Apax retail pros likeï„±David Landau
at LNK Partners. Landau had spent 14 years with Apax, having originally joined when the firm was still run byï„±Alan Patricof,
who since has moved on to found early-stage VC firm Greycroft Partners. Patricof is a major Democratic Party player in New York City, and currently serves as chairman ofï„±Hillary Clinton’s
senatorial campaign committee. Earlier this year, Clinton received a rare presidential endorsement fromï„±Oprah Winfrey,
who several years ago hosted Patricof’s GOP doppelgangerï„±Ted Forstmann
on her program, to discuss an education initiative. Forstmann is a longtime friend and sponsor ofï„±Vijay Singh,
a Fiji-born golfer who currently ranks fifth on the PGA Tour leaderboard. Way down at #192 isï„±John Daly,
known better for his off-the-course problems than for his long drives.
