TPG, a leading global alternative asset firm based in Fort Worth and San Francisco, on Sept. 23 announced that Todd B. Sisitsky has been named as President of the firm, effective immediately. TPG also made some other management changes. The firm, which has $108 billion of assets under management and investment, has been said to be positioning itself for a public offering, but no official announcement has been made. Industry reports indicate these moves are related to that plan.
Sisitsky will continue as Co-Managing Partner of TPG Capital and Co-Head of the platform’s healthcare investing efforts. As President, Sisitsky will focus on the investment activities of the firm and will work closely with CEO Jon Winkelried and the executive leadership team to develop and execute on TPG’s growth strategy. His appointment brings deep investment expertise to the firm’s executive function, while continuing to enable investment excellence at the platform level.
“Todd is an exceptionally talented and creative investor who has been instrumental in developing and executing TPG’s thematic and growth-oriented approach,” said Jon Winkelried, CEO of TPG. “Over his nearly two decades at the firm, Todd has earned the trust and respect of the partnership, the investment community, and the many management teams who regard him as a strong leader, partner, and representative of TPG. His appointment marks another important step in the natural evolution of TPG’s leadership and I look forward to working closely with Todd as the firm’s first President.”
Sisitsky joined TPG’s private equity team in 2003 to focus on healthcare investing. Under his leadership, TPG Capital has established a market-leading healthcare franchise, deploying more than $21 billion in capital across more than 25 companies and launching TPG Healthcare Partners, one of the largest pools of capital exclusively dedicated to the sector. Sisitsky was appointed Managing Partner of TPG Capital in 2015 and has since led the team in successfully implementing a highly disciplined investment strategy driven by deep sector expertise and focused on enabling long-term growth and value creation. Sisitsky is a member of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council and the Holdings Committee.
“Throughout my nearly 20 years at the firm, I’ve had the opportunity to help build and grow an organization and ecosystem that is deeply committed to its people, clients, and values, and is guided by a focus on investment excellence and growth,” said Sisitsky. “It is an honor to assume the role of President and to join Jon and the executive team in leading TPG through its next evolution.”
In addition to Sisitsky’s appointment, TPG announced a series of leadership promotions across its flagship private equity and growth equity investment platforms. Together, these leaders have more than 80 years of collective experience at the firm and exemplify TPG’s ongoing focus on disciplined investing, innovation, and entrepreneurialism.
