UNITED STATESBeyoncé Knowles-Carter’s Parkwood Ventures has hired Janki Lalani Gandhi as managing director, overseeing investments, finance and strategy.

Gandhi was most recently a managing director in Goldman SachsCross Markets and Consumer Retail Groups, focusing on beauty and fashion. Before that, she helped build investment banking firm Lincoln International’s presence in fashion and spent better than a decade cutting deals at The Sage Group.

I have spent my entire career working with talented creative founders and entrepreneurs and this opportunity takes it to the next level,” Gandhi said. “I am excited to join the team at Parkwood Ventures and contribute my experience and skill set to an innovative company with a proven track record for unmatched talent and global success.”

Parkwood Ventures is the corporate wing of Beyoncé’s creative company, Parkwood Entertainment, and manages the entrepreneur’s investments and business development. The company was founded in 2013.

Gandhi’s background is in mergers and acquisitions, but it’s not clear if the appointment signals more willingness to wheel and deal, but the potential is there.
