Straco is pleased to announce the launch of a dedicated private equity team in Amsterdam, demonstrating the firm’s strong commitment to invest in the Netherlands. Emile van Elen joined Straco in July 2021 as an Investment Manager and will focus on further building Straco’s private equity activities in the Netherlands.

“Launching a team in Amsterdam marks a logical next step for us, because we know the Dutch market well through our existing portfolio companies and because of the numerous interesting investment opportunities there. We are excited that Emile van Elen joins Straco as he brings a lot of relevant experience and sector knowledge”, says Maarten Peers, Director Private Equity.

Straco is an active and engaged shareholder, supporting ambitious people and companies in achieving long-term, sustainable and profitable growth. Straco targets M&A opportunities where it can bring added value thanks to its strategic and operational experience. Our current portfolio, spanning across Europe, includes Biogroup, Agaris, Forum Jobs and Cedo. At this stage, we are more ambitious than ever to accelerate our private equity strategy.
