Silverfleet Capital promotes three


European mid-market private equity firm Silverfleet Capital has promoted Mark Piasecki to principal, and Robert Knight and Cyril Bourdarot to investment executives.

Piasecki, pictured, who is based in London, has been promoted to principal, while Robert Knight, also based in London, and Cyril Bourdarot who is based in Paris, have become investment executives.

“Mark, Cyril and Robert have all made very significant contributions to our firm and the partners at Silverfleet Capital have recognised their hard work through these promotions,” said Silverfleet managing partner Neil MacDougall.

“Silverfleet Capital has strong and experienced investment teams based in each of our London, Paris and Munich offices which enable us to execute transactions and invest capital in a challenging deal environment.”

Piasecki joined Silverfleet in 2007 from the consumer and retail investment banking team at Citigroup, where he worked on Silverfleet’s exit of the Barracuda pub group. He joined Citi from KPMG Corporate Finance.

Bourdarot joined the firm last year from Ecocert, a French environmental consultancy business, where he was CEO of the US subsidiary. He previously worked in banking in London and Paris, latterly working in M&A at Rothschild & Cie.

Knight joined Silverfleet’s investment team in London as an Analyst in 2011. He was previously an associate at the M&A division of NM Rothschild, where he gained considerable experience of UK mid-market buyouts.
