October 11, 2017
Private Equity and Real Estate veteran Erin Sarret appointed to spearhead European expansion
Augentius, the specialist global service provider to private equity and real estate funds, has appointed industry veteran Erin Sarret as its new European Business Development Director. The move follows another successive year of 20 percent growth for the firm and marks its intention to build on this expansion in a region blessed by record fundraising and beset by unique regulatory challenges.
Sarret, who will lead the growth initiative, is a well-known figure within the Private Equity and Real Estate industries, and will bring nearly two decade’s worth of top-tier experience to the role. Having originally qualified as a lawyer and been admitted to the Californian Bar in 1994, Sarret entered the Private Equity industry in 2001 in Paris, working for Deloitte in M&A and then as General Counsel for placement agent Triago. Since then she has enjoyed an impressive career in investor relations joining Access Capital Partners in Paris as Director of Marketing in 2006, with subsequent roles at Wilshire Private Markets Group in Amsterdam, Morgan Stanley Alternative Investment Partners in London, AXA Investment Managers, LFPI and most recently in the public markets as Investor Relations at Air Liquide.
Erin Sarret, Business Development Director, Augentius commented: “I have watched Augentius grow from a tiny business into a global market leader with a reputation for delivering the highest quality of service to its clients. I am absolutely delighted to be joining such a progressive group that is always looking to innovate and change in response to the needs of a rapidly evolving industry.”
J.P. Harrop, Group Head of Sales, Augentius, added: “We are absolutely delighted that Erin is joining us. Her industry knowledge, long-standing connections, and acute awareness of the needs of clients all make her the perfect choice to spearhead our ambitious European growth plans. The European market is currently at an exciting juncture, with a buoyant fundraising market offset by unique and thorny regulatory challenges and uncertainty. There is no doubt that Erin will be a fantastic asset to our business as we continue to help clients navigate the changing times.”
