Sophia Lee has stepped down as principal and head of investor relations at San Francisco-based private equity firm Golden Gate Capital, Private Equity Career News has learned.
Lee was promoted to the role in April after serving as a vice president for the past two and a half years. Prior to joining the firm as an associate in 2015, she served in the tech investment banking branch of J.P. Morgan.
Lee’s departure marks at least the sixth mid-level professional to leave the firm in the past year. Private Equity Career News recently published an article describing a new firm founded by four of the professionals that left last June.
