Brentwood Capital Advisors has added Cook Wylly as vice president.

Wylly (pictured) will advise BCA clients on, among others, enterprise software, cloud-enabled services, mobile technology and Internet services.

Previously, Wylly was an investor with Accel Partners in Palo Alto, Calif., where he sourced and helped lead growth equity investments in technology companies. Prior to his work with Accel, he helped lead investments in enterprise software businesses at Thoma Bravo in San Francisco.

“We are delighted to have Cook join our team,” Kevin Murphy, BCA managing partner, said in a release. “He brings deep software and internet industry expertise,  as well as solid transaction experience. Because a  significant portion of our clients are software or technology-enabled businesses, the addition of Cook to our team will accelerate our efforts to serve more businesses in these attractive, high growth sectors.”

Wylly started his career in the mergers and acquisitions and restructuring group at Greenhill & Co. in New York. He also spent time leading education technology investments at NewSchools Venture Fund, a venture philanthropy firm focused on innovating K-12 education, and as a consultant in East Africa with TechnoServe, an economic development consulting firm that works with entrepreneurs in poor areas of the world.

Wylly, a Nashville native, is a graduate of the McIntire School of Commerce at the University of Virginia.

“I couldn’t be more excited to … help lead BCA’s efforts in advising entrepreneurs across the technology landscape,” Wylly said in the release. “These high growth, rapidly evolving sectors will be great focus areas for BCA for years to come.”
