SL Capital Partners makes three senior promotions

SL Capital Partners, a private equity fund of funds manager, has promoted Patrick Knechtli and Mark Nicolson to the position of partner and Jamie Ebersole to managing director.

These promotions will be effective on 1 January 2013.
Knechtli (pictured), who joined SL Capital’s Edinburgh office in 2009, will lead the firm’s secondary investment programme, an area in which SL Capital has been increasingly active and which it plans to expand further. He will also take a lead role in pursuing and transacting primary fund investments and direct co-investment opportunities.

Nicolson, who joined SL Capital in 2007, will focus on leading primary fund investments, secondary investments and direct co-investments. He is responsible for SL Capital’s coverage and origination in the UK and Germanic markets and sits on the Advisory Boards of a number of European private equity funds.  He also covers SL Capital’s activity in the energy and natural resources markets.

Ebersole, who joined SL Capital in 2008, will take responsibility for the management of SL Capital’s US investment team and North American investment programme, based in Boston.   He has helped to developed SL Capital’s investment coverage across North America and sits on the advisory boards of several North American private equity funds.

Peter McKellar, partner at SL Capital Partners, says: “Our decision to promote Patrick, Mark and Jamie is a reflection of their hard work and continued commitment to building the SL Capital Partners business and brand in the private equity fund of funds industry, across both Europe and the North American market. We believe in developing talent for the long term and I am delighted that we can promote three strong candidates from within the organisation.”
