Chet Burrell Senior Advisor, BBH Capital Partners, Private Banking
Chet Burrell is a Senior Advisor to BBH Capital Partners and is actively involved in sourcing, investment evaluation and providing post-investment value-added oversight to portfolio companies. He has held numerous CEO-level positions in the U.S. healthcare system for nearly 40 years, in both the public and private sectors, as well as in the for-profit and nonprofit arenas. He has led major private payers (three times the President/CEO of different Blue Cross/Blue Shield Plans) covering millions of subscribers as well as startup and mid-stage health technology companies backed by private equity and venture partners. Mr. Burrell has successfully overseen investments in over 40 healthcare technology and service companies, especially in his leadership role as the CEO of the largest private payer and health benefits management company in the mid-Atlantic area (CareFirst Blue Cross Blue Shield). Through much of his career, Mr. Burrell has led pioneering efforts to reform financing approaches to healthcare involving financial incentives for providers and value-based payment models to reward more cost effective, higher-quality care. These efforts have been marked by joint efforts with government policymakers and regulators as public-private initiatives in attempts to find solutions to ever increasingly unaffordable healthcare costs in the U.S. Currently, as the Managing Member of Silavon Healthcare Holdings, an entity he established to pursue targeted areas of interest in the healthcare field, Mr. Burrell is engaged in finding and overseeing highly selective investments in healthcare companies in the U.S. that are believed to offer both high social impact value and high investment value potential. These efforts are often undertaken with leading private equity players and family offices that share similar objectives. Mr. Burrell earned his bachelor’s degree from Allegheny College and a master’s degree in public administration from the University of Albany.
