Anupam Mishra, a senior executive at Hellman & Friedman who focuses on software deals, is set to leave the private equity firm shortly, said people familiar with the matter.

The people asked not to be identified because the information isn’t public. Mishra, whose plans after leaving the firm couldn’t be ascertained, joined Hellman in 2004. Before that he worked at Bain Capital, Nextset Software Inc. and Boston Consulting Group Inc., according to the firm’s website.

Hellman, which was founded in 1984, is one of the world’s largest private equity firms having raised $10 billion for its eighth fund in 2014. The group invests in a variety of sectors including technology, media and telecommunications, finance, insurance and industrials, according to its website. In January, the firm announced it hired Deepak Advani from IBM Corp. as a managing director, according to its website.

Mishra is chairman of the board of insurance software services firm Applied Systems Inc. and is a director of educational software group Renaissance Learning Inc. Both companies, which had a combined enterprise value of $2.9 billion, were bought by the private equity firm in 2014, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

A spokesman for Hellman declined to comment. Mishra didn’t respond to phone and e-mail requests seeking comment.
