APG senior PE exec departs for family office – exclusive

Megan Bethke, a former AlpInvest Partners executive, will join Mousse Partners in April, Private Equity International has learned.

An APG Asset Management senior portfolio manager in charge of global private equity has left the Dutch pension administrator to join a family office, Private Equity International has learned.

Megan Bethke, a former AlpInvest Partners executive, left APG on 16 March, a spokesman confirmed. She will join Mousse Partners, a New York-based investment house run by Charles Heilbronn, the half-brother of the owners of fashion brand Chanel, according to a source familiar with the matter.

“Megan was instrumental in helping APG build up our private equity fund investing business,” said Iain Leigh, managing director, global private equity at APG. “We wish her the best in this next step of her career.”

Bethke will join Mousse in April and will focus on primary fund investments across private equity, real assets and credit, the source said.

Bethke joined APG in 2013 as a senior portfolio manager on the private equity team, as PEI reported. She had joined AlpInvest in 2004 and began her career at Morgan Stanley, according to her Linkedin profile.

Mousse Partners, established in 1991, is a single-family office that invests in private equity, venture capital, real assets, equities and hedge funds, among other asset classes. It invests through funds as well as directly into companies, and has offices in Beijing and Hong Kong in addition to its New York headquarters.

Bethke did not return a request for comment.
