Silversmith’s Todd MacLean and Jim Quagliaroli were named to GrowthCap’s annual Top 25 Software Investors list. GrowthCap evaluated nominees based on the quality of the feedback they received from portfolio company CEOs, firm colleagues, as well as peers in the industry along with each nominee’s demonstrated leadership, deal experience, track record, and uniqueness of capabilities. This year represented the most competitive nomination pool since the start of the awards three years ago. Hundreds of nominations were submitted representing investors from over 90 firms.
As noted by GrowthCap, “The private equity and growth equity fields are meritocratic environments where most emphasis is placed on work ethic, integrity, intellect, and diligence. As such, while the investors that comprise this year’s awards list come from diverse backgrounds, the one thing they have in common is a time-tested commitment to excellence. The 2021 awardees are some of the most experienced, accomplished, and exceptional individuals in software investing. Notably, certain firms, including Silversmith, are represented by more than one awardee.”
