Sean Hayes 

Growing up in a “Healthcare Family” in New York Presbyterian hospital housing, Sean has truly been immersed in healthcare from birth. Alternating summers between working in textile warehouses in Sweden and various summer jobs at New York Presbyterian, nee New York Hospital, Sean developed an early understanding of the interplay between patients, providers and business. He oftentimes made “helpful customer service” suggestions to his father, the then Vice Chairman of Medicine at New York Presbyterian. Sean graduated with an A.B. in English from Georgetown University and a J. D., cum laude, from Fordham University School of Law.

Sean started his professional career as a corporate lawyer counseling clients across the globe in acquisitions, financings and general corporate strategy, primarily in the consumer and financial services sectors. Seeing the benefits of bringing his legal background to the investing side of private equity, Sean left the partnership at Dentons LLP to join LCatterton. There Sean focused on consumer investing and operations in the health, wellness and hospitality industries. He joins Zenyth Partners with the goal of bringing his deep consumer, financial and operational experience coupled with his legal and transactional expertise, to entrepreneurs in the healthcare services space. 

When he is not working, Sean spends time travelling with his family and coaching his children, Oscar and Sofia in sports, music and theater. Many of his greatest moments of clarity occur when he is watching his children perform or just sitting on his bedroom balcony with his wife, Nina, discussing the mysterious and mundane vagaries of life.
