Stephen Schafer

Vice President

Prior to joining Cove Hill, Stephen was a Private Equity Associate at The Blackstone Group in New York City. While at Blackstone, he evaluated and supported investments for the Blackstone Energy Partners fund. Stephen’s previous experience includes two years as an analyst at Goldman Sachs in the Financial Sponsors Group where he advised Consumer, Technology, Industrial and Real Estate companies on M&A, public offerings, private placements, and debt financings.

Outside of work, Stephen enjoys traveling, socializing with friends, listening to 90s cover bands, skiing and playing tennis.

Stephen has been an ardent Notre Dame football fan for his entire life. He is excited to start following Boston’s professional sports teams to make up for the lackluster performance of his hometown Cincinnati Reds and Bengals.
