Edison Partners adds to senior leadership team

Edison Partners, a growth equity investment firm, has appointed Rush Baker as partner, head of investor relations, and Casey Myers as partner, head of Edison Edge value creation platform. 

Baker will lead communications with existing and prospective limited partners. In sourcing new capital partners for the firm, he will leverage the firm’s strong foundation of superior performance, and bring it to new markets. 

Before joining Edison, Baker was a partner at Snowbridge Advisors, a New York-based private fund placement platform specialising in private equity and debt fund advisory and capitalisation. He began his career in finance at Deutsche Bank where he developed relationships with some of the largest institutional investors in the US, Asia and Europe.

Myers will direct the Edison Edge, the firm’s value creation platform, which includes five operating centres of excellence, executive education programs, and a director network – all designed to help portfolio companies navigate, accelerate and scale growth. Myers will build community and peer connections among portfolio management teams, and continue to expand best-practice expertise and content aligned with portfolio business models, lifecycle stages and individual company needs.

A dynamic leader, Myers brings more than 20 years of operating experience in executive management, business strategy, go-to-market and corporate development across industry sectors and stages in which Edison Partners invests. Most recently, during his tenure at SundaySky, he held several go-to-market leadership positions and led a multi-faceted sell-side process, resulting in a successful $100+ million private equity transaction. Earlier in his career, Myers helped Exstream Software grow revenues by five times in four years, and successfully exit to Hewlett Packard.
