4 December 2018

NVM Private Equity (NVM) is delighted to announce that it continues to strengthen its investment team with the recruitment of Sam Sinclair, Ishaan Chilkoti, Charlotte Clarke and Carmine Circelli. NVM is building a dedicated and focused VCT team to develop the business in a changed environment by bringing in people with experience in new, fast-emerging technology, finance and life science sectors.

Sam joins NVM as Talent Director and has over 10 years’ experience in executive search, assessment and advisory experience in the technology markets. NVM believes that access to the right people and expertise can make all the difference when it comes to scaling a business and Sam’s primary remit will be to build, develop and evolve NVM’s network of board directors and advisors whilst working closely with NVM’s portfolio businesses. 

Ishaan is based in London and responsible for sourcing, transacting and managing investments across all sectors but has a specific interest in software, engineering and social businesses. He has over 10 years’ experience, initially in investment banking and at a mid-market private equity fund. For the past five years he has been working with, and leading investments in, early-stage businesses. Ishaan has a BA in Engineering from the University of Cambridge and a Masters in Engineering Management from Duke University in the United States.

Charlotte is also based in NVM’s London office and is responsible for sourcing, transacting and managing investments across all sectors with specific interest in technology and life sciences investments. Before joining NVM, Charlotte spent over five years at Silicon Valley Bank leading transactions for growth to late-stage technology companies in Europe and the United States.  Charlotte has a First Class undergraduate degree in Biology (Honours in Pharmacology with Neuroscience) from University of Edinburgh and a Masters in Finance degree from London Business School. 

Lastly, Carmine is based in NVM’s Manchester office and is responsible for identifying investment opportunities in the North West and Wales, progressing NVM’s investments from origination, and supporting portfolio companies as they grow.   He joined NVM from the Development Bank of Wales’ technology ventures team, where he invested in early-stage businesses and has a First-class BSc honours degree in Pharmacology with Industrial Experience and a PhD in Cardiovascular Medicine from the University of Manchester.

NVM have been building a new sector-diverse portfolio at a time when the business environment is evolving more quickly than ever. Since 2015 we have invested £64 million in 22 innovative companies with exciting growth potential and over the last 12 months nine new investments have been completed. We continue to see a healthy flow of potential new investments, and have three new deals to complete before the end of 2018.

NVM’s Investment Partner Charlie Winward said. “We have invested considerable time and resources in building a dedicated and focused VCT team. Carmine, Charlotte, Ishaan and Sam are excellent additions with fantastic credentials and we are delighted that we continue to attract such talented professionals who bring additional deal-making skills and a broader transaction perspective to NVM. I am extremely excited for the future with these new hires in place.”
