New hire for Silverfleet

European mid-market private equity house Silverfleet Capital has announced the appointment of Klaus Maurer, as an executive to its investment team in Munich.

Maurer joins the team from Terra Firma, where he worked as an analyst based in the Frankfurt office. Prior to Terra Firma, he worked in leveraged finance at Société General and BHF-Bank. He graduated from Intermas Malente with a degree in International Business Administration.

Managing partner of Silverfleet, Neil MacDougall, said: “Klaus’ appointment underlines the importance to Silverfleet Capital of the German mid-sized buyout market and our commitment to it despite the currently challenging economic climate. The sale of Jost last year was our second successful recent exit from a German investment.”

Maurer is the second executive hire for Silverfleet in four months. At the end of October, the firm recruited Johannes Huttunen to its London office from European Capital.
