FORTUNE -- Alex Ferrara has agreed to rejoin Bessemer Venture Partners, Fortune has learned. He will work as a partner focused on tech opportunities, out of the venture capital firm's Larchmont, N.Y. office.
Ferrara previously worked at BVP between April 2005 and February 2011, later joining Millennium Technology Value Partners as a partner. He quietly parted ways with Millennium at the end of last year, after his primary, early-stage investing experience didn't quite translate to Millennium's secondaries-focused and late-stage business.
While with Bessemer the first time around, Ferrara's deals included Shopify, SelectMinds, OMGPop (acquired by Zynga) and Yodle.
Bessemer currently is investing out of a $1.6 billion fund raised in 2010.

Not too long ago, OMGPOP was on the brink.
Zynga (ZNGA) yesterday announced that it has acquired fellow social game publisher OMGPOP, for a reported $210 million (including employee retention bonuses). Sixteen months ago, it would have been unthinkable.
For the uninitiated, OMGPOP is the creator of Draw Something, a Pictionary-like game that has become the top mobile and top Facebook game since being launched just six weeks ago (bumping off Zynga's Words with Friends).

Brian Feinstein has quietly rejoined Bessemer Venture Partners to lead investment activities in Brazil and Russia. He previously had spent more than two years with the Larchmont, N.Y.-based firm, before leaving in September 2010 to focus on tech, media and energy investments at The Blackstone Group (BX).
"I realized that my passion really lay in venture capital, not in private equity," Feinstein explains.
