Stéphane joins from Rothschild & Co.

Perwyn announces the appointment of Stéphane Gaudard as an Investment Manager in its Paris office, as it continues to grow its presence in Europe following the appointment of Mathieu Antonini as Head of France in September 2022.

Stéphane joins Perwyn from Five Arrows Principal Investments, the private investment arm of Rothschild & Co. in Paris, where he worked since 2014, lately as an Investment Manager.

During his tenure at Rothschild & Co. Stéphane was focused on making investments in the software and healthcare sectors.  He was actively involved in Five Arrows’ investments in companies such as Hygie31 (Pharmacies Lafayette), IAD, A2Mac1, and Softway Medical.

Stéphane is an EM Lyon graduate and is fluent in French and English.

Mathieu Antonini, Head of France, added: “I am very pleased that Stéphane has chosen to join Perwyn following his seven years at Five Arrows.  With his technology and healthcare investment track record in France, Stéphane is the ideal addition to the Perwyn team.

“We welcome Stéphane to Perwyn. We are growing our team in line with our objectives, and are fast establishing a meaningful presence in the French market.”

Stéphane Gaudard, Investment Manager, added: “I am delighted to be joining Perwyn, as Andrew and the team have forged an impressive private equity company.  With its private permanent capital basis from a select group of significant investors, Perwyn’s business model is particularly appealing to me.  This will allow me to focus all my efforts on identifying and executing great investments as well as leveraging the full potential of the portfolio. I look forward to my new role and to play a part in Perwyn’s ongoing success.”
