Prior to joining Hazeltree, Held was the CFO of Vehlo Purchaser, a provider of SaaS solutions to the automotive repair industry. At Vehlo, he participated in the acquisition and integration of seven companies and built out the finance/accounting area to support the 14 companies in the firm’s portfolio.

Held has more than 30 years of experience in finance for several high-growth companies, from early-stage start-ups to established businesses across the fintech, technology, SaaS and financial services industries.

Held previously served as CFO for AlphaPoint, a provider of cryptocurrency exchange solutions, for more than a year and spent more than three years as CFO of TradingScreen, a SaaS-based provider of liquidity, trading and investment technology to the financial community. For 13 years, he was also CFO of Liquidnet, a global institutional brokerage and software development firm.

Held is the latest C-level appointment at Hazeltree. In August, the company appointed Sonia Spicehandler as the firm’s first chief people officer. Sandy Weil was named chief revenue officer in June, and Tushar Amin was named CEO in April.
