Palm-Backer Elevation Partners Nabs Former Apple Software Chief Avie Tevanian


*Apple* vet Avie Tevanian has defected to what *Apple* fans might consider the dark side: He’s joining Elevation Partners, the PE firm that counts Palm (NSDQ: PALM) as one of its biggest portfolio companies.

Tevanian will serve as a managing director, per DigitalDaily, and he’ll be surrounded by a number of fellow Apple (NSDQ: AAPL) alums, including Palm CEO Jon Rubinstein and board member Fred Anderson. Tevanian spent nearly 10 years with Apple, first serving as SVP of software engineering, and then as the chief software technology officer from 2003 to 2006.
