Stamford, Conn.-based private equity secondary market specialist Newbury Partners has named Mr. Stephane Chevrier managing director.
In his new role at the $2.2 billion firm, Chevrier will be responsible for the origination, execution and monitoring of private equity investments.
Prior to joining Newbury, Chevrier served the primary and secondary private equity markets as a principal investor for over 13 years. Most recently, Chevrier was the founder and managing partner of Equifin Alternative Investments, an alternative asset management firm focused exclusively on the private equity asset class.
Prior to EAI, Chevrier was a managing director at Ardian (formerly AXA Private Equity), a leading global European-based private equity firm and before that a financial auditor for Mazars Group and KPMG in London and Paris.
"We are thrilled to welcome Mr. Chevrier to Newbury Partners as a managing director. His history with transactions lends a unique perspective to the secondary market and its constituents—general partners, limited partners, and sellers active in the market. Stephane is a perfect complement to such an experienced and accomplished team, one which has executed more than 150 secondary transactions across nearly 20 years as secondary specialists," said Richard Lichter, a managing partner at Newbury Partners, in a statement.
