"Thatcher has demonstrated the ability to find and partner with leading entrepreneurs to build successful companies," says Goldstein. "This is an exciting time for DFJ Gotham. Given the rapidly increasing start-up formation in New York and our plans to accelerate our investing pace over the next couple of years, we are thrilled to have Thatcher expand his role at DFJ Gotham."

Bell joined DFJ Gotham in 2005 and focuses on investments in software, internet, financial technology, and digital marketing. He brings a decade of experience in venture capital investing, along with startup operating and consulting experience, to his new role.

Bell has led a number of investments for the firm, including its investment in SinglePlatform, which was recently acquired by Constant Contact CTCT +1.07% . He currently serves on the boards of ADstruc, Fynanz, Lumeta, and Widetronix and represents DFJ Gotham’s investments in Sailthru, EXPO and Verterra.

Bell also serves on the board of directors of the NY Tech MeetUp, is co-chair of the New York chapter of Wharton Private Equity Partners, and is a co-organiser of Penn Digital.
