At Bella, you’ll have the opportunity to solve complicated problems for clients around the world, ranging from fast-growing regional venture capital firms and development organizations to top-10 global buyout groups and government agencies. Far from just a cog in the machine, you’ll contribute meaningfully from day one, interacting with clients and seeing projects through from start to finish. We expect big things from our team members—you’ll be pushed to grow and learn every day. But along the way you’ll be supported by colleagues and mentors who give you the tools you need to rise to each new challenge.
Each member of the Bella team brings unique skills and interests to the firm. We are researchers, musicians, mathematicians, and sailors. What brings us together is inexhaustible curiosity and a passion for solving meaningful questions. Our work is elevated by collaboration. Team members are both unafraid to ask for advice and generous with support. We’re committed to the highest standards of integrity and challenge one another to dig deeper into each question and think critically about our work. Alongside all of this, we believe in having fun. Our work is rounded out with afternoon ping pong, walks to the farmers’ market, conversations over coffee, and the occasional game of fetch with one of the office dogs.
Boston's North End
In 2018, Bella moved to Boston’s exciting and historic North End. The North End is one of Boston’s oldest neighborhoods and is home to many historical landmarks such as Copp’s Hill, Old North Church, and Paul Revere’s House. The North End and surrounding areas contain a number of exciting attractions, restaurants, shops, and bars. On a typical evening, you can find members of the Bella team sailing in Boston Harbor, jogging along the Esplanade, attending a networking event downtown, or exploring the Boston Public Market’s locally-sourced artisanal food and drink selection.
Analysts at Bella enjoy not only Boston’s many attractions but also easy access to other areas of New England and beyond. The office, located just two blocks from North Station, a major commuter rail and Amtrak terminus, is within a ten-minute cab ride to Logan airport, South Station (for southern train access), and the Long Wharf ferry terminal. Favorite weekend getaways include taking the train to New York or Maine, hopping on a ferry to Cape Cod, or flying off to Nashville. No matter your speed, everyone can find something to love about our office’s North End location!
Dr. Josh Lerner lives on a farm in Hamilton, Massachusetts with his wife Wendy and a menagerie of horses, donkeys, sheep, rabbits, hens, dogs and cats. In 2009, they came upon a newborn goat up for adoption and named her Bella. She quickly grew into a beloved family pet, sleeping on the bed, riding along in the truck, and befriending a donkey. When Bella Private Markets was incorporated in 2010, the firm was named in her honor.
