He primarily focuses on healthcare and insurance investments and currently serves on the boards of Pharmaceutical Product Development and Sedgwick.

Sher joined Hellman & Friedman last year as chief financial officer. He brings over 13 years of experience, most recently as a principal in Deloitte's M&A transaction services group, and is responsible for all finance, accounting, and tax matters at the firm.

Wasim joined the firm in 2005 in the San Francisco office. He primarily focuses on digital media, internet, and business services efforts and currently serves on the board of Internet Brands.

In addition, Hellman & Friedman has promoted Philip Sternheimer to director and Stephen Ensley to principal.

"These promotions recognise the outstanding contributions all of these individuals have made to Hellman & Friedman," says Philip Hammarskjold, chief executive officer. "We look forward to their continued success at the firm." 

Hellman & Friedman also announced the continued expansion of its team with three new appointments. Philip Meicler and Suzanne Kim joined as principals and Rachel Wilson joined as associate counsel.  Hellman & Friedman is looking to add additional principal level investment professionals this year for both its New York and San Francisco offices.
