Jeffrey Kimberly

FOUNDER & GENERAL PARTNER

Prior to co-founding BaseCamp Equity, Jeff worked as a Senior Vice President at Antares Capital.  Jeff spent over 10 years at GE Capital’s financial sponsors group, which was re-branded to Antares Capital following its sale to CPPIB in 2015.  Jeff underwrote and syndicated leveraged transactions for the business’s private equity clients.  During his tenure, Jeff closed over 100 transactions representing total transaction value of over $20 billion, with a meaningful portion of his transaction activity focused on the technology, software, business services and healthcare sectors.   

Jeff previously served as a Director on the Board of Palladium Industries, a niche manufacturer of eye safety products.  During his tenure, Jeff and Adam partnered together to strategically optimize the business, overhaul corporate governance, reinvigorate the leadership team and strengthen cash flows.  These initiatives ultimately lead to a profitable exit for investors through a successful sale to a strategic acquirer. 

Jeff earned his BA from Syracuse University and is a CFA Charterholder.  Jeff lives in Fairfield, CT with his wife and three children.  He is an avid skier, golfer and paddle tennis player.
