H.I.G.: Markus Noe-Nordberg becomes MD of the middle PE market in Europe

5. Febru­ary 2019

London — H.I.G. Capi­tal, a leading global private equity firm with over EUR 26 billion in equity under manage­ment, appoints Markus Noe-Nord­­berg (photo) as Mana­ging Direc­tor and head of its new Euro­pean mid-cap busi­ness, which will comple­ment H.I.G.’s exis­ting Euro­pean small-cap activities.

The small-cap team focu­sing on medium-sized compa­nies with an enter­prise value of up to EUR 250 million will conti­nue to invest from the current EUR 825 million fund as before.

Markus Noe-Nord­­berg will lead the private equity acti­vi­ties in the mid-cap segment from London and work closely with the estab­lished local invest­ment teams. He has over 30 years of expe­ri­ence in corpo­rate finance and leverage buyout. Prior to joining H.I.G. Capi­tal, he was a part­ner and one of the foun­ders of Pamplona Capi­tal. Previously, he was a Mana­ging Direc­tor and Co-Head in the Finan­cial Spon­sors Group at Gold­man Sachs in London.

Sami Mnaym­neh and Tony Tamer, foun­ders and co-CEOs of H.I.G., commen­ted, “We are very plea­sed to have Markus join H.I.G.. Given his back­ground and expe­ri­ence, he is the ideal fit to lead our new private equity acti­vi­ties in the Euro­pean mid-cap segment.”

Commen­ting on his new role, Noe-Nord­­berg said: “I am deligh­ted to build on H.I.G.’s success in Europe in the small-cap and lower mid-cap markets, where the firm has alre­ady secu­red a leading posi­tion in private equity with five offices. We are now broa­de­ning our invest­ment focus to include larger tran­sac­tions valued between EUR 250 million and EUR 750 million — a market segment in which the firm has been a successful player in the U.S. for more than a decade.”
