Conrad Brown

Partner

Conrad joined Seidler Equity Australia at inception in 2017 and is involved in all investment activities, including the sourcing and closing of portfolio company investments, as well as assisting owner-operators and management teams on value-enhancing growth projects.

Prior Experience

Conrad began his professional career at Greenhill & Co, an independent investment banking company, where he worked on a number of M&A and strategic advisory assignments across the consumer, technology & media, education and general industrial sectors. His experience includes advising a number of owner-operator and family-owned SMEs on various organic and inorganic growth strategies, as well as exit planning and value optimisation.

Growing up within a family of business operators, Conrad had a fireside view of the many complex operational and growth-related challenges that face management teams of rapidly scaling businesses. This background strengthened his empathy for owner-operators and continues to drive a passion to work with our partners to overcome these challenges and unlock their growth ambitions.

Education

Prior to starting his career in finance, Conrad studied at The University of Sydney, graduating with a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Finance (B.Comm, Finance).

Outside of Work

Outside of the office, Conrad enjoys working up a sweat at the gym, spending time on the water, and playing the odd game of tennis. He and his wife have a son and another child on the way.
