Tikehau Capital has appointed Emmanuel Laillier as head of Private Equity, effective from 5 September.
He joins from Eurazeo PME, where he has been a board member and managing director since 2011. Previously, he was an associate director at EPF Parnter, which operates in the small and mid cap private equity market in France. Between 1999-2002 he was part of the Fonds Partenaire Gestion team.
At Tikehau, he will contribute to the development of PE activities of the manager, including supervising the management of the latest funds launched by the group. This follows the acquisition in 2012 of Salvepar that boosted its capabilities in this area. Laillier is tasked with fostering growth in the PE business.
Antoine Flamarion, co-founder of Tikehau, said: “We are delighted to welcome Emmanuel Laillier to the team. He is a highly-respected investment professional who fully understands Tikehau Capital, having previously been a member of the investment and audit committees from 2004 – 2016. His appointment at Tikehau Capital, is the outcome of many years of mutual confidence. He will enable us to significantly enhance the development of our private equity business.”
