Kian Capital Partners, a middle-market private investment firm, has added Thomas Bullock and Doyle Silvia as associates and Mikaela Parma as a senior accountant.

Going forward, Bullock and Silvia will be tasked with evaluating, underwriting, and monitoring new and existing investment opportunities. Bullock joins the firm following his time with Driven Brands. Prior to joining Kian, Silva served with VRA Partners where she provided merger and acquisition, capital raising, and strategic advisory services.

In her new role, Palma will concentrate on the firm’s accounting, financial reporting, audits and examinations, and tax reporting. She joins the firm following her time as a senior internal auditor with Truist.

“Our role is to empower management teams by providing the resources necessary to accelerate growth and scale their businesses,” said Kevin McCarthy, co-founder and partner at Kian Capital. “Thomas, Doyle and Mikaela add significant muscle to our team as we continue to support our portfolio companies by investing in value creation capabilities. 2021 was a strong year for Kian, and 2022 is looking to be a similar story—these new additions to our team will be essential in helping Kian continue to deliver exceptional results as we grow.”
