PE Specialist Palamon Capital Makes 2 Senior Hires

Dec 11 2013 | 8:58am ET

Palamon Capital Partners has tapped Philippe Arbour as managing director of structured finance and Antony Barker as director of investor relations and marketing.

Arbour joins Palamon after 10 years with Lloyds Banking Group, where he worked in a variety of roles spanning trade finance, specialist credit and leveraged finance. Most recently, he was a director in the leveraged finance & high yield team. In 2006, he was a founding member of the large-cap sponsor coverage and LBO execution team. Between 2010 and 2011 he was seconded to 3i Plc. as a director in its banking team. 

Antony Barker re-joins Palamon from global placement agent Campbell Lutyens and DMC Partners, where he was an investor relations associate based in London.  Prior to that, he spent five years at Palamon in investor relations and marketing.

Louis Elson, managing partner of Palamon Capital Partners, welcomed the new hirees, saying, “Philippe has worked with a wide range of private equity deal sizes and structures during his career at Lloyds as well as inside 3i which makes him perfectly suited to Palamon’s signature range of mid-market transactions. Antony returns to us having gained invaluable experience which will widen our perspective and enhance our ability to support our investors.

Palamon recently announced the sixth exit from its €670 million 2006 fund, Palamon European Equity II, which has to date generated cash proceeds of €660 million and a 3.6x return and 28% IRR on fully realized investments.  Palamon II still has €60 million of capital available for investment and 11 high-growth companies remaining in its portfolio.

Palamon is an independent private equity partnership founded in 1999 and focused on providing equity for European growth services companies. The firm manages funds with €1.3 billion of equity capital for investment.
