Wendy Menefee passed away in her home on February 9th peacefully. She was surrounded by friends and family, both human and feline. Wendy grew up in Berkeley and was a long-time resident of San Francisco. She was an alumna of the Head Royce Schools, Katharine Gibbs School in Boston, UCLA, San Francisco State University (BA) and University of San Francisco (MBA). Wendy was a co-founder of and partner at Pivot Point Capital. She was the guardian of the firm's reputation as well as its legal compliance and she brought professionalism, expertise and a cheerful disposition to both roles. Wendy was an experienced back office manager and compliance executive with more than 20 years in the securities industry. Before joining Pivot Point, Wendy was General Manager of Harris Bretall Sullivan & Smith and, before that, a vice president with Blum Capital Management.
Wendy was a person of the utmost integrity. Doing the honorable thing was automatic; doing anything but that would have been inconceivable. In addition to being proud of her part in the success of Pivot Point Capital, Wendy cherished her family and friends, enjoyed tending to her beautiful home and garden, and doted on her stunning Russian Blue cats, Skylar and James. Wendy was a lifelong learner, avid reader, and world traveler. We will miss her soft-spoken nature, quick wit, and unfailing elegance. She is survived by mother Phyllis, sister Jennifer, brother Chris and friends from coast to coast. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations in her memory to the SF SPCA.
