Minneapolis, MN – North Sky Capital (“North Sky”) is pleased to announce that Rachael Polson has rejoined the firm as a Marketing Associate. “We are excited to welcome Rachael back to our team,” said Gretchen Postula, North Sky’s Head of Investor Relations. “Rachael originally joined us right out of college and has worked for us in various roles for six of the last ten years. More recently, she’s broadened her skill set in a business development role for another Twin Cities private equity firm that we know well.”
Rachael brings more than 10 years of prior private equity industry experience. In addition to North Sky, Rachael was previously with Hunter Street Partners, a Minneapolis-headquartered private equity firm, where she helped raise approximately $100 million for its inaugural fund, created and maintained marketing material, coordinated the investor onboarding process and maintained correspondence with limited partners and co-investors. She also helped manage the firm’s public relations and social media presence.
As a Marketing Associate, Rachael will work across the firm’s fundraising, investor relations and public relations functions. During her prior time at North Sky, Rachael served in investor relations and operations roles, where she was integral in new investor onboarding, ongoing investor relations communications, impact report curation and marketing materials creation and maintenance, functions that will immediately be additive to the growth of the Firm. Rachael graduated from the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management with a bachelor’s of science in business.
“This is an exciting time for North Sky,” said Scott Barrington, CEO. “Rachael is our third hire already in 2021, and we have plans to add additional team members to further expand our investment and client service functions.”
