Nordic Capital makes two new Partner promotions

Nordic Capital has announced two promotions – Pär Norberg, Head of Investor Relations, has been promoted to Partner following his instrumental role in the successful virtual fundraising of Nordic Capital Fund X, which reached over EUR6 billion in less than six months and closed in September 2020, while Philippe Neuschäfer has been promoted to Partner with a focus on lower mid-market healthcare investments in the DACH region.

Following the strong fundraise and high transaction activity in 2020, these two promotions further increase the firm’s capacity and strengthen the position within the key sectors and regions in which Nordic Capital invests, and with its investors across the globe.

 
Norberg joined Nordic Capital Advisor’s Investor Relations team in 2014 and early on became a key contributor to Nordic Capital’s IR and fundraising activities. Since becoming Head of IR of Nordic Capital Advisors in 2018, Norberg has led the development of the IR strategy and team, leading to the record-breaking EUR6.1 billion Nordic Capital Fund X fundraising during the Covid-19 pandemic.
 
Neuschäfer is a leader in DACH sourcing and portfolio development for healthcare platform investments and significant add-on acquisitions. He has an extensive local network and has been an important contributor to building Nordic Capital´s franchise in the DACH region since he joined Nordic Capital Advisors in 2014.
 
“I would like to express my congratulations to our newly promoted Partners. They have each made considerable contributions to the firm, and their promotions reflect both their personal achievements and the depth of their expertise. The most important relationships are those Nordic Capital has with its investors, and a strong IR team is key to continued success. The DACH region is an important market within our core sectors and we look forward to growing further there,” says Kristoffer Melinder, Managing Partner, Nordic Capital Advisors.
 
“We are very grateful for the tremendous investor support Nordic Capital received during the fundraise last year. Fund X was launched in the middle of a global pandemic, which required investors to completely alter their investment processes to enable remote diligence. The success of the fundraise despite these challenges reflects the investors’ considerable confidence in Nordic Capital’s strategy and team. I am very excited about the future of our firm and am honoured to join this outstanding Partner group,” says Norberg, Head of IR and Partner, Nordic Capital Advisors.
 
“Nordic Capital has built a strong platform as one of the leading private equity investors in DACH. I am looking forward to exploring new investment opportunities and to continue to contribute to the development of Nordic Capital’s position in the region as Partner,” says Philippe Neuschäfer, Partner, Nordic Capital Advisors.
