Bill Koch joined Plexus Ventures in 2018 following a diverse career spanning corporate development, business development, corporate venture capital and private equity.

In 12 years in worldwide business development with GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare, Bill led or participated in numerous acquisitions, licenses and divestitures.  He also developed a divestment “playbook”, an end-to-end process for identifying, divesting, and transitioning non-strategic assets.  Prior to leaving GSK, he was a core member of the integration team responsible for business planning for the GSK-Novartis Consumer joint venture.

Post-GSK, Bill served as Vice President of Acquisitions for a start-up private equity fund investing in near-commercial companies focused on healthcare workflow efficiencies.  His experience also includes several years as a Director / Acting CFO for a $100M corporate venture fund.

Bill’s hands-on experience in managing projects ranging from single product disposals to complex operational carveouts uniquely positions him to offer clients practical solutions to successfully implementing a divestment program to augment a growth strategy.
