New member for Crown senior management
Crown Capital Partners, a provider of growth capital to successful mid-market companies, has appointed Michael Overvelde to the position of senior vice president for finance.

“We welcome Michael to the Crown team,” said Crown President and CEO Chris Johnson. “We believe his background makes him a great fit for our organization, given our many connections to the capital markets.”

Overvelde is a seasoned veteran with more than 25 years of experience in capital markets and accounting. He was most recently vice president and an equity research analyst at Raymond James, focused on the Canadian Diversified Financials sector. His equity research experience also includes stints at TD Securities and UBS Securities Canada, monitoring banking, insurance, and industrials companies. He spent around 10 years in senior institutional equity sales positions at National Bank Financial and UBS Securities Canada.

Before getting into the capital markets, he was audit manager at Ernst & Young for more than five years, mainly working on the financial services and diversified industries units. Overvelde’s credentials include a bachelor’s degree in commerce, as well as the Chartered Professional Accountant and Chartered Financial Analyst designations.

“He will work closely with our CFO Lyle Bolen to transition responsibilities in the coming months as Lyle prepares for retirement,” Johnson said.
