Accueil / News / Appointments at SWEN Capital Partners

SWEN Capital Partners announces two appointments:

  • Diego APONTE VARGAS is appointed Director of International and Commercial Strategy
  • Thibault RICHON is appointed Director of Multi-strategy Infrastructure activities

Diego, who also remains co-director of the Multi-Strategy, Private Equity andMezzanine Debt activities, joins the Executive Committee of SWEN Capital Partners alongside Thibault.

This organisational development will strengthen the activities of SWEN Capital Partners by affirming its positioning as a Historic Responsible Investor in the unlisted market, increasingly committed, with major challenges such as diversification of its international customers and the continued fundraising for its new vintages in multi-strategy Infrastructure, Private Equity and Mezzanine Debt.

From now on, Jean-Philippe RICHAUD, Deputy Director-General, will manage all the multi-strategy Private Equity and Infrastructure activities, with Laurent GHILARDI as Director and Diego APONTE VARGAS as co-director of the multi-strategy Private Equity and Mezzanine Debt activities, and Thibault RICHON as Director of the multi-strategy Infrastructure activities.

Our team members are one of the most beautiful assets of SWEN Capital Partners today. These internal developments come to enhance, quite logically and legitimately, professional investment, human quality and are a sign of recognition of the value of the company’s talents. Very structured, Diego and Thibault have acquired (since 2011 and 2016 respectively) both internal and external legitimacy with a demonstrated ability to unite teams as well as a real entrepreneurial spirit.
