Professional Experience

Prior to joining Edgemont in late 2016, I was the founder and Managing Partner of South Main Equity, a boutique financial and strategic advisory firm focused exclusively on the healthcare services sector. While South Main served clients across various verticals, I developed extensive domain expertise within the pharmaceutical supply chain and related technology enabled services.  Since 2010, I’ve led over $1.5 billion in buy and sell-side M&A engagements for both publicly traded and privately held institutions operating in the Rx supply chain.

The first five years of my career were spent as a buy-side corporate credit and equity analyst at a Bear Stearns hedge fund and on the proprietary investment desk of Credit Agricole CIB.

 

Chip holds series 7, 24, 63, 66, and 79 securities licenses.

  • Family

    I met my wife as an undergrad at Trinity College and we have two young boys together.

  • Secret Ambitions

    As an unabashed oenophile and foodie, I fantasize about opening a wine bar/bistro that focuses on New World wines and related local cuisines.

  • Personal

    I was born in New York City and while I’ve briefly called Nashville, London and a handful of New England locales home, Gotham always seems to lure me back.

  • Passions (outside of work)

    Living in the Northeast, I grew up on skis and began competing in slalom and GS when I was 12 years old.  I was fortunate to attend schools that had mountains within a 10 minute drive and was able to ski every day during the winter.  My wife, a Floridian, doesn’t ski, which has meant fewer fresh tracks for me over the years, but now that my son is old enough for the T-bar, I’m hoping to hit the slopes more often.

    In the warmer months, I’m an avid tennis player and angler.
