The Brief

To find a senior investment professional to cover Eastern Europe on behalf of a Chinese private equity firm.

The Challenge

The firm was looking to identify someone with a strong track record across banking or investing in Europe but with specialist knowledge of Russia, coupled with an understanding of the Chinese investor mindset.

The Solution

Whilst the target universe of Russia/Eastern Europe specialist investment bankers and private equity professionals is well known to us, we needed to identify the individuals with not only the skill set, but also the mindset to fully appreciate the China-Russia opportunity.

Our unique position among these market developments, combined with our ability to source extensively among the relevant investment banking and private equity universes, and our capacity for creative and lateral thinking, enabled us to successfully pinpoint the right person for this challenge.
