Toronto – September 30, 2020 – Retained executive search firm Caldwell (TSX: CWL) is pleased to announce the promotion of Liz Bernich and Peter Anselmo, both of the New York office, to the role of Partner.

“Liz and Peter have proven their ability to deliver outstanding client service and exceptional results,” said Paul Heller, managing partner of Caldwell’s New York office. “We are delighted to celebrate their achievements, support this next step in their career and eagerly anticipate more of their excellent contributions in the years to come.”

Ms. Bernich focuses on senior level capital raising/investor relations, investment and finance searches in investment management, private equity and venture capital.

Her strong track-record of connecting her clients with exceptional talent who drive meaningful long-term results are hallmarks of her success.

Ms. Bernich joined the firm in 1996 and has played a variety of roles across the company. Prior to joining the firm, Liz was an auditor for Deloitte, focusing on multi-faceted, global clients. She graduated from Villanova University cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in accounting and holds her CPA certification.

Mr. Anselmo is a member of the Private Equity & Venture Capital, Technology, and Professional Services practices. He focuses on placing C-suite and senior executives across multiple functions including product, engineering, IT, marketing, sales, HR, finance and operations. His clients include high-growth technology portfolio companies in the SaaS, e-commerce, digital and consumer space, as well as professional services firms. His ability to understand and assess the underlying businesses, industries and unique culture in each search assignment, coupled with his track record of uncovering hidden talent, has earned him a reputation as a trusted advisor to his clients and candidates.

Mr. Anselmo joined Caldwell with 10 years of experience with other prominent international search firms, where he worked in the Global Chief Information Officer and Financial Services practices. His primary focus was on technology and operations roles across all industries, where he assisted clients by identifying talent for executive positions deemed critical to organizational success. He is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
