GEM Private Equity Partners has appointed Natalie Yukselen-Alink as a managing director in preparation for the launch of its maiden p.e. fund.
Yukselen-Alink spent the past six years in Turkey advising executives on restructuring. She has also worked as a manager at McKinsey & Company.
“The appointment of Natalie is the start of a major expansion by GEM Private Equity Partners,” Anthony Inder van Rieden, chairman, said. “Natalie’s track record of working in the restructuring of companies is a strong fit with a number of similar investments which we have undertaken. We look forward to expanding the team in the coming months.”
Turkey will be the main focus for GEM Private Equity Partners. The firm believes that the Turkish macro-economic and business environment has developed to a level, which is now ready for an increase in private equity operations.
GEM Private Equity Partners will work closely with its affiliate GEM Global Equities Management in conducting research and investment decisions. GEM Global has in the past managed a number of Turkish private equity investments ranging from $10 million to $200 million.
