Tom Smith joins Baird Private Equity from KPMG

8 Mar 2012

Baird Private Equity has hired Tom Smith as vice president of fund management from KPMG’s Transaction Services.

Smith’s new role at the firm’s Chicago headquarters will involve portfolio monitoring, analysis and valuation.

Prior to joining Baird, Smith spent six year with KPMG providing due diligence services for private equity and corporate clients, with a focus on buy-side acquisitions.

Baird, the global private equity group of Robert Baird & Co, makes venture capital and private equity investments across the United States, China, Asia and Europe and has raised more than $2.8bn since the 1980s.

The firm’s European arm, Baird Capital Partners Europe, recently made a four times return by selling air conditioning company Spheros to German financial investor Deutsche Beteiligungs.
