Tej Sahi joined CIBC Innovation Banking’s North American team as a managing director in New York.

Sahi has more than a decade of experience in the financial services industry. He most recently worked for a U.S. financial institution’s global fund banking division, focusing on the origination and structuring of debt for venture capital and private equity funds.

“We are delighted to have Tej join our growing ranks,” Mark McQueen, president and executive managing director of CIBC Innovation Banking, said. “Venture capital and private equity funds have told us they are looking for new sources of liquidity for both their funds and general partnerships. With Tej’s experience and CIBC’s capital base, our clients and prospects will be exceedingly well-served in the months and years to come. As our team grows, CIBC Innovation Banking is quickly becoming an important ally to tech and life science entrepreneurs and their equity partners.”
