Eveline F. Gerck
My expertise has been in structuring and executing direct equity investments and investments in VC and PE funds, leading multicultural transaction teams and negotiating interests with various internal and external stakeholders. This also includes preparing investment and quarterly investment reports and participating in investment and advisory committees. In addition, I have solid due diligence skills and experience developing deal flow and marketing banking products and investment ideas. These due diligence and marketing abilities have been developed since earlier in my career while working for large investment banks and later in the private equity industry. The industry segments I have investment and deal expertise are primarily manufacturing and service industries, including: metals, capital goods (including energy related equipment), forestry, pulp and paper, chemicals, food, logistics and DYI retail segments. I have also done deals in the agribusiness and Fintech spaces. I have always been based in New York City, but, four years ago, I relocated to Rio de Janeiro in order to acquire the experience to, on the ground in a third world country, invest directly in companies and local funds operating in the private equity space in South America and Asia. I am now looking to go back to the US or Europe.
