Coller fundraising partner leaves

Ashley Johansen, a partner responsible for fundraising, has left the firm just a month after the firm closed its biggest-ever secondaries fund.

A Coller Capital partner responsible for fundraising has left the firm a week after the secondaries powerhouse’s chief executive resigned unexpectedly.

Ashley Johansen, who first joined Coller in its New York office in 2005, left on 29 January, a spokesman confirmed to Secondaries Investor. Johansen was a senior marketing manager at the firm until 2012 when she left for Carlyle’s fund of funds unit AlpInvest Partners, according to her LinkedIn profile.

Johansen rejoined Coller in 2013 and most recently worked on Coller International Partners VII, the firm’s $7.2 billion secondaries vehicle that closed on 31 December.

Fortune first wrote about Johansen’s departure.

Johansen’s position will not be replaced at present, the spokesman said.

Coller announced at the end of January that its chief executive Tim Jones had decided to leave for “compelling personal reasons” that were not disclosed, as Secondaries Investor reported.
