By Oak HC/FT

2021 is shaping up to be a big year for Oak HC/FT. Fast on the heels of closing our fourth and largest fund, we’re excited to celebrate the promotion of Billy Deitch to Partner and the additions of Tess Munsie and Chelsea Chen to our growing team.

Since joining Oak HC/FT in 2018, Billy has played an integral role on the Healthcare team. Billy has been at the forefront of our investments in Cerebral and Olive, and also worked closely with the teams at Brightline, OODA Health, Everside Health and DispatchHealth. We’re proud to acknowledge Billy’s contributions with his much-deserved promotion to Partner.

We’re also honored to welcome Tess as a Senior Associate on the FinTech team and Chelsea as an Associate on the Healthcare team. Before joining Oak HC/FT, Tess was a Senior Associate at General Atlantic and was also previously an Investment Banking Analyst at Goldman Sachs. Chelsea joins us from TA Associates, where she was a Growth Private Equity Associate in their Healthcare group, and before that was an Investment Banking Analyst at Morgan Stanley.

Billy, Tess and Chelsea’s news comes on the heels of the promotions of Andy Smith to Vice President, Eliza Adams to Senior Associate, and Sophia Samutin to Associate. We also recently welcomed Josh Jackson and Ben Schachtel to our talent team, led by Leah Scanlan, who are all instrumental to sourcing and recruiting leading senior executives across our portfolio.

As we look ahead to the rest of the year, we’re excited about our growing team and the opportunity ahead to support inspiring founders and drive transformation in Healthcare and FinTech.
