Kelly Panes, Investment Manager


I’m an Investment Manager within the CVX team. My role at CVX involves seeking out new and growing companies that represent compelling investment opportunities for CVX and our partner network.


I am Canadian and completed my undergraduate studies in business in Canada. After starting my career in Toronto, I completed my MBA at the University of Cambridge in the UK, where I’ve been based ever since. Before joining CVX, I spent many years at Kroll advisory firm as a consultant to venture capital and private equity investors, evaluating their portfolios and providing guidance on the fair value of their investments. At CVX, I transfer that early investment knowledge to my direct investment role.


The best part of my role at CVX is meeting engaged founders early in their journey and seeing them reach milestones.
