Based on the belief that some owners are not fully satisfied with the option of selling to a competitor or someone with a buy-and-flip strategy, Shahzad founded Devonshire Partners to be a different type of investor, one focused on long-term stewardship.
Prior to Devonshire, Shahzad spent ten years as a strategy consultant and investment banker in New York and Los Angeles. Most recently, he was a Vice President at Moelis & Co., an investment bank in L.A. Previously he was a Manager in the M&A Strategy & Acquisition Diligence practice at Monitor Deloitte, a consulting firm.
Shahzad has led teams advising CEOs, CFOs, and senior business managers on how to improve operations, increase efficiency, and grow their businesses. He is active in all aspects of Devonshire’s work including deal sourcing, due diligence, deal execution, and portfolio company management.
Shahzad holds a BSBA from Washington University in St. Louis and a MBA from UCLA Anderson School of Management.
