We’re thrilled to welcome Everett (Ev) Randle, back to Kleiner Perkins as a Partner.
In the past five years, our firm has evolved tremendously. We first went back to Kleiner’s roots of early stage investing and company building, and then expanded our funds to support founders as they hit inflection and escape velocity.
Our team is the most important part of this evolution. As we continue to evolve, we looked to add a partner with proven success both backing high inflection investments, and partnering with founders the Kleiner Perkins way.
Ev originally joined Kleiner Perkins in 2018. He was a standout on the growth team and we always hoped he’d be back. In less than four years Ev has only built on his standout reputation, leading investments in companies such as Rippling and Stord (boards where we continued to work with him), Wave, and Chronosphere, and most importantly winning over those founders.
Ev is a consummate investor with a keen eye for fundamentals across enterprise software and financial services. His ability to understand business drivers and help companies navigate the transition from Series A to growth and beyond is exemplary.
We admire Ev’s enthusiasm for company building and dedication to the founders that he partners with. Most importantly, Ev deeply lives and breathes our mission, investing ethos, and values, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have him join the team and help Kleiner Perkins and our companies make history.
