Goldman Vet Lepic Plans Private Equity Firm

Mar 19 2013 | 2:04pm ET

A former Goldman Sachs merchant banking executive is setting up a private equity firm that will focus on western Europe.

Hugues Lepic is behind Aleph Capital Partners. The new firm will focus on private investments and capital solutions in Europe, Financial News reports.

Lepic spent more than two decades at Goldman, rising to head its merchant bank in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. He retired in August.

Lepic is now in talks with Crestview Partners, the US$4 billion private equity firm helmed by former Goldman colleague Barry Volpert. The two firms may enter into a strategic partnership to both source and execute investments; both firms would remain independent and investments would be made on a deal-to-deal basis.
