Kennet Partners hires Neil Cooper as finance director


Technology growth equity investor Kennet Partners has appointed Neil Cooper as finance director. In his new role he will be responsible for finance, administration and investor relations.

Kennet lost its previous finance director Manish Mittal to CEE-focused private equity firm Mid Europa, who hired him as their chief financial officer in September.

Cooper joins from Robert W Baird Group, where he was financial controller, a role he previously held at Advent Venture Partners.

Michael Elias, managing director, said “We are delighted that Neil has joined the Kennet team. Neil brings significant private equity experience, having worked in multiple areas of the industry in his career to date.”

Earlier this month, the firm led a $15m Series B round for German mobile app marketing platform Trademob.
