Rosanne Zimmerman leaves private equity firm after 15-year run.

FORTUNE -- Rosanne Zimmerman has stepped down as a managing director with private equity firm Warburg Pincus, Fortune has learned.

Zimmerman joined Warburg Pincus in 1998 to focus on fundraising and investor relations, and was the firm's primary contact with large limited partners like the New Jersey State Investment Council.

She previously had worked for GE Capital's structured finance group, and is a steering committee member of CARE's Women's Initiative Group of New York. No word yet on her future plans, although a source familiar with the situation terms it a "retirement."

Zimmerman is no longer listed on the firm's website.

UPDATE: A firm spokesman confirms that Zimmerman has chosen to retire.
