Chicago, IL. — Prospect Partners is thrilled to introduce the newest additions to our investment team: Zach Stander, who joins as a Vice President, and Ryan Chapman, who joins as an Associate.

Zach joins us after receiving his MBA from the Northwestern University Kellogg School of Management. He has over six years of experience investing in and advising middle-market businesses through his roles at Erie Street Growth Partners, Apogem Capital, and PwC.

Ryan arrives at Prospect from Livingstone, where he was an Investment Banking Analyst focused on sell-side M&A advisory and debt and equity capital raises across multiple industries.

We’re also proud to announce the well-deserved promotion of Kyle Slovis to the role of Senior Associate. Since joining Prospect in 2020 from RBC Capital Markets, Kyle has been an integral member of the team and key to the firm’s success.
