interview hire job suit tieGlobal private equity firm HIG Capital has tapped fellow buyout houses Silverfleet Capital and Ratos for two senior staff members.

Johannes Huttunen was previously part of Silverfleet’s deal team in London and previously worked on UK buyouts for European Capital and in the healthcare M&A team of Deutsche Bank.

Johan Pernvi worked on buyout deals at Ratos and was formerly at Bain & Co.

HIG London managing director Paul Canning said, “We are delighted to welcome Johannes and Johan.

“These appointments will further strengthen our team’s in-house operational, financial and strategic expertise as we continue to seek opportunities to drive value creation working with businesses in the mid-market.”

Earlier this week HIG Capital closed its Middle Market LBO Fund II on its $1.75bn hard cap after a speedy fundraise which was over in two months.

Back in December AltAssets reported that HIG was seeking $1.6bn for a new fund, which was launched five years after it raised $1.5bn for its first mid-market fund.

TPG’s mid-market funds invest in companies with enterprise values of between $150m and $750m.
