About MeSangeeth Peruri Portrait

My wife (Sindhu), son (Raghav, 1st grader at Covington), daughter (Isha, preschooler) and I live on Pepper Drive near downtown Los Altos. After years of moving from apartment to apartment, I can finally say I am home. I love the sense of community I get in Los Altos.

Outside of education, my primary hobbies revolve around sports. I have dabbled in everything from yoga to gymnastics. Lately, I have been training for NBC's reality TV show, American Ninja Warrior. Check out my submission video.

Professional Background

The majority of my career was spent at Seligman, an investment manager with offices in New York City and Menlo Park. I founded and ran the Seligman Spectrum Focus Fund, a diversified market neutral hedge fund that managed over $1bn in assets at its peak. I started at Seligman on the venture capital team and eventually moved over to the public equities team as a semiconductor analyst and then launched a hedge fund for the firm in 2006. After the firm was sold to Ameriprise, I stayed on as a portfolio manager until 2012. Thereafter, I focused my efforts on improving the US education system through philanthropic endeavors.
