There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it's going to be a butterfly.

R. Buckminster Fuller

Background
Allison (Ali) joined TCV in 2016 to oversee human capital. She brings over 20 years of experience discovering and empowering talent within the investment management industry.

Prior to joining TCV, Ali created and ran the hedge fund practice at Korn Ferry International, advising and leading senior level searches for large and small alternative investment managers, affiliated fintech companies, and boards. She drove human capital strategy, enhancing and cultivating everything “people” while in Partner, CAO, and COO positions at Arden, Citadel, Och-Ziff, and Pequot. Ali began her career in training and development within California-based non-profit organizations.

Interests
When she’s not enjoying warm weather water sports with family and friends, Ali is trying to improve her yoga and flower arranging talents. She can also be found on the occasional playground, reaching for the sky on the swing set and marveling at the almost perfect microcosm for human behavior – never static, often surprising, and always inspiring.

Education
Ali earned a B.A. in Humanities with an emphasis in Education from University of California, Berkeley.
