Exclusive: Sequoia Capital poaches from Goldman and Twitter

February 19, 2014: 11:26 AM ET

VC firm Sequoia Capital has added two junior partners to its growth equity practice.

FORTUNE -- Sequoia Capital has quietly hired a pair of junior partners for its growth equity practice, Fortune has learned.

The first is Andrew Reed, who previously was a San Francisco-based tech banker with Goldman Sachs (GS). His work at Goldman included last year's IPO for RingCentral (RNG), which was a Sequoia portfolio company. Also worth noting that he may be the youngest junior partner in Sequoia's history, at just 23 years of age.

The second is Matt Huang, who co-founded a social media analytics company called Hotspots.io back in 2010. The company was later acquired by Twitter (TWTR), where Huang stuck around as an engineer focused on revenue analytics.

As we had previously reported, Sequoia is currently seeking to raise between $900 million and $1 billion for its sixth U.S. growth equity fund.

Sequoia declined to comment on the new additions.
