Advent International, the global private equity group, has added four new members to its Boston-based North American deal team. Mohammed Anjarwala joins as principal, and Nicholas Pike, Christopher Ryan and Sarah Smith as associates.

Anjarwala joins Advent from SFW Capital Partners and Bain Capital Partners. Pike previously worked for UBS Investment Bank in its financial sponsors and leveraged finance group.

Ryan comes to the firm from The Parthenon Group, a Boston-based consulting firm where he was part of their private equity group, and Smith previously worked for McKinsey & Company in the firm’s North American private equity practice. All three associates will join sector focused deal teams, specifically business & financial services, industrial, and retail & consumer.

“We are delighted to welcome these talented investment professionals into the Advent organization,” said David Mussafer, head of Advent International, North America. “These appointments bring the North American team count to over 20 adding tremendous buyout and sector expertise while bolstering our deal-making capacity in North America.”

Advent was founded in 1984 and has offices in 14 countries on four continents.
