In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year.

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Feb. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Employee Stock Option Fund (ESO Fund), a pioneer in stock option financing for employees of leading, venture-backed companies, today announced that venture capital industry veteran Michael Banks has joined the firm as a Venture Partner.

"As a board member of a variety of successful start-ups, I became aware that many departing employees were struggling financially to exercise their vested equity positions. As an investor, I saw the opportunity to provide option financing to these departing employees allowing them to share in the potential upside of their start-up without incurring significant cost," said Banks. "The opportunity to work with a fund that provides a valuable service to entrepreneurs while offering attractive potential returns to investors was a perfect match."

"Michael's reputation as a supportive company-builder and his long-term success as an investor have allowed him to establish relationships and trust with both the entrepreneurial and venture capital communities," said Stephen Roberts, co-founder and Managing Partner of the ESO Fund. "His deep network and investment acumen complements our mission of identifying attractive employee share purchase opportunities at outstanding venture-backed companies."

Mr. Banks has been a consultant and entrepreneur but got his start in venture capital in 1997 with Intel Capital where he managed Digital Media and new technology investments. In 2001, Michael joined Steamboat Ventures, Disney's venture capital arm. More recently, Michael was a partner with Palisades Ventures and lead media and enterprise software investments for DE Shaw Ventures before founding Windy Hill Capital in 2012. Mr. Banks received a BA and MA from Stanford University and an MBA from The Anderson School at UCLA.
