The Quaker Partners team has extensive experience with investing private capital, operational management, finance, and in appropriate planning and execution of exit strategies. The team's experience covers the full spectrum of the life science industry, including pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, healthcare services and medical technologies. Due to long and successful careers, the Quaker team has developed wide networks of business relationships that support the firm's investment activities. We believe combining diverse functional talents on the Quaker team yields better investment decisions for our investors and offers our CEOs broader support with more perspectives at the table.
In March 2016, we unexpectedly lost our co-founder and friend, Dr. Brenda Gavin. We will miss her presence and influence on our team.
