Sagewind Founder Invests 10 Years on Posse Board

Steve Lefkowitz, the founding partner of Sagewind Capital LLC, has been a member of the Posse Board of Directors for the past 10 years.

Steve grew up in Columbus, Ohio, and attended Northwestern University where he studied economics. He was accepted into an accelerated MBA program, leaving undergraduate studies a year early to study finance and accounting at Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management.

Steve was introduced to Posse by his Kellogg classmate Jeff Ubben, now chair emeritus of the board.

"Posse is simply the best, in all respects," says Steve. "Our graduates will make this world a better place for us all to live in.”

Always an enthusiastic supporter of Posse, Steve has felt a special connection to the Posse Veterans Program since emerging as an early advocate for the initiative.

“I admire Posse,” he says, “for taking this leap of faith to address a huge social injustice in our country—our treatment of veterans.

Steve lives in Scarsdale, New York, with his wife and teenage daughters and has two older sons in college. He credits his venture capitalist father and social worker mother as role models for his drive and world view.

“For those of us who have been blessed with success, we have an obligation to give back,” Steve says. “It’s a privilege I take very seriously.”
