QED Investors, a leading global venture capital firm focused on investing in disruptive financial services companies, today announced the hire of Courtney Christianson.
Courtney joins QED as head of investor relations and will be responsible for increasing the global scale of its investor relations function and the scope of its sources of investment capital. She will develop and strengthen relationships with new and existing investors as well as design and manage future fundraising strategies from inception to outcome.
“This is a critical role in the evolution of QED and I am thrilled to bring on such a talented and well-respected head of IR as Courtney to our team,” said QED Investors Managing Partner Nigel Morris.
“As QED continues to scale, Courtney will play an instrumental role in maintaining ongoing dialogue with potential partners, as well as managing our highly valued relationships with our existing LPs who have put their trust in us.”
Courtney joins QED most recently from KSL Capital, a leader in travel and leisure investing, where she oversaw investor relations and fundraising efforts across equity, opportunistic and credit vehicles, as well as facilitated global team LP coverage.
Previously, Courtney spent three years as the founder of Apogee HQ, a business development consultancy for venture and growth equity managers and companies. She has also served in senior roles at Alpha Edison and 3L Capital. Courtney began her investor relations career at The Blackstone Group in New York as a vice president within private equity.
“QED’s organic growth has fueled relationships with some of the most respected LPs in the world,” said Courtney. “Combining this history with today’s early stage, growth, and opportunistic platform will be an exciting next chapter, and I’m thrilled to support our QED team and investors in continued partnership.”
