Kevin Gillis

Partner/Chief Operating Officer

Even as Third Rock evolves, our team dynamic is still what makes us special.

Kevin Gillis

With over 25 years of financial leadership and management experience, Kevin leads Third Rock’s non-investment activities, which include running internal operations and overseeing the firm’s finance, legal, communications and administrative functions. He also leads fundraising activities and manages the firm’s limited partner relationships.

Kevin appreciates that TRV has been able to stay true to our founders’ focus, transforming the lives of patients, while continuing to welcome team members with new energy and diverse ideas as we evolve as a firm. He is particularly excited about initiatives at the firm surrounding preventive medicine, which he believes have the opportunity to revolutionize the treatment paradigm for cancer and other serious diseases. The progress our portfolio companies have made excites Kevin, and seeing their work over the past decade now come to fruition in the form of approved products drives him to continue building expert teams with a passion for making a difference.

Kevin is incredibly proud of his wife and two children, and feels grateful to be part of a wonderful extended family.
