Get to know our team

Bartley joined Consero in April of 2020 as Managing Director of the Private Equity & Venture Capital channel. He is responsible for leading Consero’s business development efforts working alongside middle market and lower middle market PE firms, VC firms and growth equity firms to provide their portfolio companies with the financial rigor, sophistication and clarity offered by Consero and typically required of institutional investors.

With more than 20 years of financial services, sales and private equity experience, Bartley most recently spent 15 years helping start, lead and scale the PE channel at Gerson Lehrman Group (GLG) through two rounds of institutional investment. Prior he was at J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.

He has been on the board of NYPEN (The New York Private Equity Network), was Man of The Year for The Leukemia-Lymphoma Society and has been involved with The American Ireland Fund.

Private Equity and Venture Capital firms and their portfolio companies face the unique challenge of needing accurate financials at their fingertips as part of their diligence process for add-on acquisitions, carve outs, and across their portfolio operations function. My goal is to help these institutional investors equip their portfolio companies with the invaluable financial infrastructure offered by Consero to position their companies to exponentially scale."
