Agilitas Private Equity has added six people to its headcount, with four of the hires tasked with boosting the firm’s investment capabilities.
Alex Brebbia, Hamza Ben Abderahmen, Marcus Risland and Matteo Recchia join Agilitas’ investment team.
Brebbia joins as a senior member of the team. He was previously head of a pan-European private equity and development capital fund.
“I have been backing mid-sized businesses for 25 years and have long admired Agilitas and its proven ability to create long-term value in businesses through transformation,” Brebbia told PE Hub Europe. “It is a pleasure to join such a strong team of pan-European professionals. I look forward to leveraging my experience to further grow Agilitas’s platform and to aid the team in its ambition of having a positive impact on people and the planet.”
Ben Abderahmen began his career at JP Morgan before focusing on growth and impact private equity in EMEA. He has focused on impact investment for 10 years.
Risland began his career at Morgan Stanley in New York before moving to private equity. He subsequently moved to Sweden and brings a “strong experience” of investing in the Nordics, according to Agilitas.
Recchia started his career in Milan with Wepartners before coming to London in private equity and subsequently becoming the CFO of one of the investments he backed.
Mia Sendlbeck and Sam Berry are the other two hires, joining Agilitas’s finance team.
“These new appointments will help to further drive the ambitious transformation plans of the companies that we back and the growth of the Agilitas platform,” said Martin Calderbank, managing partner at Agilitas, in a statement.
