Delaveau will be based out of Partech’s Paris office where he will be responsible for strengthening investor relations and managing the firm’s growth strategy. He previously spent nine years at CNP Assurances.
“Emmanuel Delaveau played a major role in turning CNP Assurances into one of Europe's largest private equity institutional investors, with €6 billion under management,” said Philippe Collombel, co-managing partner at Partech Ventures. “His experience will give us an opportunity to pursue strategic relations with our investors on a global scale.”
“Partech Ventures is one of the most creative and active transatlantic teams originating from Europe both in terms of investment capacity and number of deals, bringing much more than capital,” added Delaveau. “The strong entrepreneurial and operational backgrounds of the team allow us to cover the complete value chain of tech investing as well as understand the specific issues faced by major industries.”
In San Francisco, where the VC firm has been growing its transatlantic presence, new partner Reza Malekzadeh will bring his software background to help strengthen the firm’s US foothold.
