Kristin DePlatchett,  a StepStone Group research-team member who was promoted to managing director this year, has left the firm, a source with knowledge of the situation said.

DePlatchett is no longer listed on StepStone’s website. She joined the firm in 2008 and was a principal focused on middle-market and energy private equity research. She was promoted to managing director in February, her LinkedIn profile shows. Her profile continues to list her as working at StepStone Group.

Prior to StepStone, DePlatchett worked at Fort Washington Capital Partners for about two years, her profile said. Earlier, DePlatchett was an options trader at Schaeffer’s Investment Research.

DePlatchett was listed in a group of senior partners for StepStone’s third secondary fund, which was targeting $750 million, a Portfolio Advisors due-diligence report gathered for Los Angeles City Employees’ Retirement Fund last year shows.

She was listed as part of the secondary fund’s key-man group, which includes a total of 14 executives, the report said.

Caroline Luz, a spokeswoman for StepStone Group, declined comment. DePlatchett did not respond to a LinkedIn connection request.
