Introducing Keith Anthony and Our New Private Equity Practice
When you start a new role leading a new team, the opportunities are endless. That’s what Keith Anthony is most excited about now that he has joined Method as a Client Partner and head of our Private Equity practice.
Keith brings over 30 years of experience in the financial industry to his team and clients. After getting his degree in economics from the University of New Hampshire, he started his career in technology and operations for a regional bank that was acquired by Bank of America, which taught him the ins and outs of mergers and integrations.
Keith then spent the bulk of his career scaling the companies he worked with and their clients. From partnering with huge firms like Accenture and EY, to co-founding consulting and technology startups, to playing leadership roles at mid-size consulting firms, Keith brings a wealth of perspectives and diverse experience to Method’s team. (Speaking of unique perspectives and experiences, he also survived the infamous “Miracle on the Hudson” plane crash, but that’s a story for another article or podcast!)
While he enjoyed the challenge of working with global clients for large enterprises, Keith missed being more directly involved in growing a business vertical. He had met the Method team years ago through a joint project, so when the opportunity came up to join the team, grow a new practice, and work side by side with our clients, it was a natural fit.
“I’m a ‘growth guy’ and love being part of building and scaling an engine. Method is really well positioned to grow and add huge value to the market, especially with the support of GlobalLogic and Hitachi,” Keith says. “I’m looking forward to being surrounded by amazing talent, working with amazing clients, and helping both achieve their potential.”
Method’s team is equally excited to welcome Keith. Executive Director of Client Engagement Michael Lum adds, “Method is expanding our work in the PE space to help sponsors and portfolio companies find opportunities for value creation. Keith’s extensive experience with scaling businesses of all sizes – from early-stage companies to massive enterprises – makes him the perfect fit for supporting this effort.”
