Wesley Bayer

Next Generation Bay Area Steering Committee

Wes is passionate about giving back to communities locally and globally both through development and education. After witnessing extreme poverty in Asia and its acute impact on children, he began to look for ways to contribute to this challenging and important cause. Later, during a UNICEF NextGen event, he recognized the organization's humanitarian impact worldwide and immediately decided to join NextGen and support its mission. Professionally, Wes works at Golden Gate Capital, investing in the software and information services sectors. Previously, he was an associate at H.I.G. Capital and a financial analyst at Houlihan Lokey. He graduated from Georgetown University with a B.S.B.A in Finance and a minor in Chinese.
