Secondaries private equity shop Greenpark Capital has promoted the appropriately named Daniel Green to CIO.
Green, who joined Greenpark in 2001, leads the investment team and participates in the sourcing, evaluation and execution of transactions. Over the past 12 years, he has been involved in numerous secondaries investments throughout Europe, the U.S. and emerging markets.

The promotion follows the March launch of Greenpark’s Hong Kong office and the appointment of Chin Chin Teoh, formerly managing director and co-head of the Asia private equity group at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, as head of Asia.
Also last year Green won a mandate from the International Finance Corporation to collaborate on an initiative focusing on private equity secondaries in emerging markets. Greenpark expects 2012 its own emerging market dealflow for this year to be worth $3 billion.
Said Green, in a statement: “The next few years promise to be an incredibly exciting time for Greenpark, and I am delighted to be playing a leading role in our expansion into new markets. Our collaboration with the IFC is a major milestone in Greenpark’s development and puts us on a truly global footing. In addition, we continue to see great opportunities for growth in our existing private equity secondaries operations in Europe.”
