Cecile Chevallier

I grew up in Paris and graduated from London Business School and Paris Dauphine University.

I started my career in the investment world, at NEO – a consumer PE fund based in London – investing and building consumer lifestyle brands across fashion, F&B, hospitality and design and supporting highly-ambitious entrepreneurs (incl. Pierre Marcolini, Victoria Beckham, Tom Dixon, Miller Harris etc..). While at NEO, I was on the Board of Tom Dixon, a leading British design brand.

After almost 3 years I found my way into the Beauty and Personal care world being part of the Unilever Prestige team in London as a Strategy Manager, supporting the global acquisition aspirations of Unilever and helping our portfolio of 8 brands (incl. Dermalogica, Tatcha, Murad etc..) expanding towards new territories or categories.

I joined Verlinvest in early 2021, and lead our Beauty and Personal Care vertical. I am also actively involved on broader investment opportunities in France. I am passionate about exciting brands of the future who bring a digital and social dimension with a well-thought strategy towards millennial and gen-z consumers, a distinctive aspect and operating model that embraces new consumer behaviours and which is unmatched by existing players.

I work closely with our portfolio companies Tony’s Chocolonely and Toluna.
