Trilantic Europe hires Eugenio Preve, Yasir Piracha as partners

Preve joined the firm in January from Cinven.

  • Piracha will oversee Trilantic Europe’s investment activities in the DACH region
  • Trilantic Europe is an independent private equity investor based in London
  • It manages around €2.6bn in assets

Trilantic Europe has appointed Eugenio Preve and Yasir Piracha as partners, in its Italian and German teams, respectively.

Preve joined the firm in January from Cinven, where he served as head of the Italian team and the Milan office, overseeing origination and execution of Italian investment opportunities.

Piracha joined the firm today and will partner with Henrik Bodenstab to oversee the investment activities in the DACH region. Previously, he served as partner and head of healthcare at Quadriga Capital in Germany and founded AYIA ONE.

This development follows the close of Trilantic Europe’s Energy Transition fund in January, which reached its target size of €375 million.

“Welcoming Yasir and Eugenio underscores our strong commitment to the German and Italian markets,” said Javier Olascoaga, managing partner of Trilantic Europe. “This development builds on our success in establishing both markets as key regions for the firm, alongside our local presence in Spain and the UK.”

London-based Trilantic Europe is an independent private equity investor specialising in mid-market management-led buy-out transactions across Europe. It manages around €2.6 billion in assets.
