Early-stage Venture Firm H360 Capital continues its expansion today, bringing on Entrepreneur Sirena Moore and Strategy Professional Renee Russell as associate partners.

Charlotte, N.C. – April 25, 2011 – H360 Capital, an early-stage venture capital firm announced today that Sirena Moore and Renee Russell will join the firm as Associate Partners effectively immediately. Moore will provide entrepreneurial insights and executive experience to the team, while Russells diverse professional experiences and networks will help drive H360s strategic partnerships and investment activities.

“Today, H360’s leadership team got much stronger,” said H360 Managing Partner Hezekiah Griggs III. “Sirena and Renee are exceptional thought-leaders, and we can’t be more excited as a firm to have them as a part of our team. The myriad of achievements they’ve had individually will make us collectively stronger as a firm, and provide even greater value to our investment activities moving forward.”

Moore entered the corporate world at the age of 17 by working for industry leaders such as Morgan Stanley Dean Witter, Advest and Palm, Inc. with an objective to obtain the skills necessary to fulfill her dream of becoming an entrepreneur.

At 21, she launched Elohim Cleaning Contractors, Inc., a full-service construction cleaning firm that provides wide range of services to general contractors and construction management firms. Now a multi-million dollar company, her business consistently ranks among the top minority-owned businesses in the country.

Moore serves as one of the youngest Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce Small Business Board members, and was named 2010 Small Business Person of the Year. Now 28, she has graced the cover of Black Enterprise Magazine, and works as a tireless advocate for young female entrepreneurs.

“Mr. Griggs and the Partners’ vision for H360 Capital is one that I am very much aligned to,” said Moore. “My experiences as an entrepreneur give me a first-hand perspective on the resources available, and why in particular H360 Capital is needed. I look forward to the success we will have, together, at H360 Capital.”

“We are excited about the addition of Sirena Moore to our team,” said H360 Capital Partner Fenorris Pearson. “She is an inspiring role model for entrepreneurs, and her contributions to our team will be immeasurable.”

Renee Russells relevant professional experiences can be attributed to her days at Goldman Sachs supporting IPO transactions of consumer e-tailing companies. She worked at Time Warner, as a business development analyst, advancing to corporate strategy associate where she evaluated internet start-ups for potential investments. Russell’s most recent role was Business Affairs Manager with Burford Group Limited, a start-up hedge-fund that focuses on US Commercial Litigation and International Arbitration.

A Wharton Graduate, Russell earned a degree in both Entrepreneurial Management and Finance. A former Assistant District Attorney, Russell has a law degree from Howard University School of Law and was admitted to the bar in both New York and New Jersey.

“H360 Capital is a wonderful opportunity for me to use my full repertoire of talents, connections, and leadership experience,” said Russell. “The team at H360 Capital is quite impressive, and I’m looking forward to actively being involved as we continue to develop as a firm.”

“Renee is a great addition to our team,” said H360 Capital Partner Brian Peters. “She will be a central piece in our ongoing fundraising, and deal flow activities.”

The additions of Sirena Moore and Renee Russell are among the latest moves by the venture capital firm. In the past three weeks since Hezekiah Griggs III announced the firm, H360 Capital has added Serial Entrepreneur Brian Peters, former VP of Motorola and Dell Fenorris Pearson, and former Hewlett-Packard (HP) and Microsoft executive Corey Rosemond as Partners. NFL-player turned Corporate Lawyer Bob Brown was also introduced as Partner and General Counsel.
