Greenpark strengthens team as it starts spending fund

A month after closing a €730 million fund, European secondaries specialist Greenpark Capital has bolstered its team with the appointment of two new investment directors and two internal promotions.

Greenpark Capital, a London-based secondaries firm, has hired Mark Huber and Tanja Saaty as investment directors.

Huber was previously a fund manager at Austrian firm Global Equity Partners, where he managed a European portfolio of direct investments and an American portfolio of fund-of-funds investments. While at Greenpark, he will responsible for deal origination and execution, with a particular focus on German-speaking markets.

Saaty was formerly a director at Mezzanine Management UK, where she focused on mezzanine debt and equity investments in the UK, Germany and Spain. She will concentrate on deal origination and execution in European markets.

The firm has also made two internal promotions – Daniel Green has become an investment director and Philippe Munch an associate investment director.

Green joined the firm in 2001 as an investment analyst. Before Greenpark, he worked at venture capital firm Newtonmore Technologies and at PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Munch has been an investment analyst at Greenpark since 2003. He previously worked at Société Générale as a corporate finance associate.

Founded in 2000, Greenpark Capital has more than €1.3 billion ($1.8 billion) under management. The firm recently closed its third and biggest fund on €730 million – well above its original target of €500 million.
