Encore Ventures boosts investment management team

Encore Ventures, the secondaries division of European venture capital firm DFJ Esprit, has boosted its investment management team with the addition of Richard Marsh as partner and Jonathan Freuchet-Sibilia as investment manager.

Marsh will take responsibility for managing certain investments acquired from 3i in September 2009.

For the last three years Marsh was an investment manager at Oxford Capital Partners where he was responsible for its ICT portfolio. Prior to that, he spent over a decade working directly with early-stage and growth businesses, including founding the data quality software company Datanomic.
Freuchet-Sibilia joins Encore Ventures from Jefferies International where, as an associate within the technology team, he undertook M&A and capital markets advisory work across Europe for technology-centric businesses. Prior to Jefferies he worked for investment bank Rothschild & Cie in Paris.
Charles Cameron (pictured), head of Encore Ventures, says: “I am delighted with these additions to the Encore team. The scale of our asset management resource continues to grow, to the benefit of all our investors. Richard’s hands-on entrepreneurial experience and Jonathan’s M&A expertise add to the range of skills we can offer to our portfolio companies."
