Quilvest Capital Partners (“Quilvest”), a dedicated global mid- and lower mid-market alternatives investment manager with over $7 billion in AUM and a century-long, seven-generation family shareholder heritage, today announces John Eggleston as its first Global Chief Operating Officer and Partner, effective May 13th 2024.

The new role and strategic move mark another milestone in Quilvest’s evolution, geared towards strengthening the firm’s growth strategy. It follows closely on the heels of the recent strategic transition in March 2024, with Christophe Evain being appointed Non-Executive Chairman of the Board and Alexis Meffre retaining his position as the firm’s CEO.

John will oversee Finance, Operations, and Technology functions, driving initiatives to increase operational efficiency and implement sustainable growth strategies. Based in Quilvest’s London office, John will also serve on the firm’s Executive Committee.

John's appointment brings a unique blend of operational excellence and growth to Quilvest. As a co-founder of Callcredit and a former Partner at both BGF and Pantheon Ventures, his extensive experience and strategic vision are expected to shape the future of Quilvest.

Alexis Meffre, Quilvest CEO, commented: “We are thrilled to welcome John Eggleston as our first Global COO. John's extensive experience and proven track record in operational excellence will be invaluable as we continue to scale our operations and enhance efficiencies worldwide.”
