Palamon elects three new partners

Palamon Capital Partners has elected Julian Carreras, Pascal Jean-Noël Noth and Gary Pritchard to the partnership.

Carreras, previously a principal, originally joined Palamon in 2003 from Goldman Sachs.  A Spanish national, he has consistently played an important role in executing the firm’s investment strategy across continental Europe with a particular focus on Spain and Italy.  He sits on the board of SARquavitae, Spain’s largest provider of elderly care, where he also serves on the Executive Committee.  He is also active in a board capacity in Palamon portfolio companies EnGrande in Spain, Sigla in Italy and Quality Solicitors in the UK.
Noth, also previously a principal, joined the Palamon investment team in 2009 also from Goldman Sachs.  A Swiss national, he has been a principal deal manager across a range of sectors and country markets with a concentration on German-speaking continental Europe.  He has been singularly responsible for the significant financial and strategic achievements of Prospitalia and POLIKUM, both Palamon healthcare companies operating in Germany.  He has also been actively engaged at board level in OberScharrer Group and Cambridge Education Group, where he played an instrumental part in its development and recent exit.
Pritchard joined Palamon in 2008 as the firm’s chief financial officer and was promoted to managing director in 2011.  Since that time, he has had management responsibility for financial controls, structuring, tax and regulatory compliance for both the firm and its funds.
Louis Elson, managing partner of Palamon Capital Partners, says: “It is always a great delight for a private partnership to elect new partners, especially ones who have contributed as significantly as Julian, Pascal and Gary.  We look forward to the tremendous value we know these individuals will add in the coming period as we continue delivering successfully on our growth investment strategy.”
