PRESS RELEASE

BearTooth Advisors LLC (“BearTooth”) today announced that Maggie Littlefield Sahlman joined the Firm on May 1, 2017, as a Managing Director based in Boston.

“We are pleased to welcome Maggie to the Firm and, in some ways, it’s more of a rejoining,” said Bob Brown, Co-Founder of BearTooth. “Given our time working together previously, I know that Maggie will be a valuable addition to our team, and we look forward to working with her again.”

Prior to joining BearTooth, Ms. Sahlman was a senior professional at Advent International where she was responsible for fundraising and investor relations activities in North America and Latin America. Brown and the Firm’s two other co-founders, Andy Lund and Jim McGee, formed BearTooth Advisors in 2014 after having led Advent’s global fundraising, investor relations and broader marketing functions. Ms. Sahlman joined Advent in 2007. “As I reflect on my time at Advent, I believe the experience I gained over the past ten years will serve me well as I enter into this new role with BearTooth,” Maggie Littlefield Sahlman said. “I’m excited to utilize my experience and work closely together with my former colleagues in an effort to build out a next generation advisory platform for private equity managers.”

Brown commented further, “In addition to augmenting our LP coverage capabilities across the Americas, Maggie’s arrival has further bolstered our ability to provide strategic advisory services to general partners. Our collective in-house operating experience is now almost 50 years across market-leading firms such as Advent, Carlyle and Goldman Sachs.”

Prior to joining Advent in 2007, Maggie worked for Goldman Sachs in New York, where she was involved in global product management efforts of the Private Equity Group, which focused on fund commitments, co-investments and secondary market investments.
