Chiltern is delighted to announce the appointment of three new members to the team. Andrew Symmonds and Philip Weston join as Partners, with Zerxis Billimoria joining as an Investment Associate as the firm continues its successful buy-and-build investment strategy.
Andrew joins us from Maven Capital where he focused on supporting portfolio companies, leading exit planning and driving shareholder value. He has extensive experience working with management teams to help them achieve their strategic goals and grow their businesses.
Philip has been involved in private equity for over twenty years. He was a partner at Kelso Place Asset Management, where he was instrumental in developing the firm. More recently Philip was at LDC, where he focused on lower mid-market investments.
Zerxis joins us from Tenzing PE where he assisted the investment team on new deals and portfolio management primarily in the technology and business services sectors. Zerxis has recently graduated from the MBA programme at London Business School following an earlier career at Deloitte.
Tom Phipps, Partner, comments “The last six months has been an exceptionally busy period for the firm and we’re pleased to welcome Andrew, Zerxis and Philip to the Chiltern team. Andrew and Philip both come with proven portfolio and investment track records. Their experience will be invaluable as we continue to work closely with our management teams to deliver organic and buy-and-build value creation strategies. The addition of Zerxis gives us additional firepower within our team as we gear up for another active period.”
