ST. LOUIS – WILsquare Capital, a St. Louis-based private equity firm, announced the hiring of John Curry as Vice President.
John joins WILsquare Capital after graduating with his M.B.A. from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania in May 2019. Prior to business school, John spent seven years at Robert W. Baird & Co., a Midwest-based investment banking firm, participating on a wide range of M&A and financing transactions for middle market companies. John began his career in Ernst & Young’s Assurance group. John has his M.S. in Finance from Washington University in Saint Louis along with a B.S. in Accounting and Mathematics from Saint Louis University.
“We are excited to welcome John back to St. Louis.” said Bill Willhite, Managing Partner at WILsquare Capital. “After business school, John could have easily found his way to the East or West Coast. However, John’s strong desire to put his experience and knowledge to work helping owners and their management teams transition their businesses and execute their growth strategies led him back to the Midwest and WILsquare Capital. We are thrilled to have John join our team.”
