Private equity firm Everstone Group has hired Brooks Entwistle as partner and group CEO.
Entwistle joins Everstone from Goldman Sachs where he worked for 22 years in various roles. For the last 15 years he has been based in Asia.
Based in Singapore, he will oversee the day-to-day management of the firm as well as lead cross border transactions and large deal origination.
Entwistle will also join the firm’s partnership committee where he will work closely with and provide significant support to his fellow Everstone partners.
The new recruit’s most recent title was chairman of Goldman Sachs South East Asia as well as CEO of Goldman Sachs Singapore.
Before that he spent five years in Mumbai as CEO and founder of Goldman Sachs India where he was responsible for leading and building the firm across all divisions.
Everstone Co-Founder and Managing Partner Sameer Sain said, “This is a great step for Everstone as we continue to build a long-term and strong investment platform.
“As a fellow Goldman Sachs alum, I have known Brooks for a long time and have seen just how outstanding he is as a leader and an individual. Brooks’ India and broader Asia experience and network will also be a great asset to Everstone.”
Headquartered in Singapore, Everstone has 130 employees and manages approximately $2bn.
Everstone exited its stake in Indian supply chain business Transpole to Japan’s SBS Group in July this year.
