A director at Montana Capital Partners is parting ways with the firm, almost two years after he joined the Switzerland-headquartered investor in complex secondaries.
London-based Serge Koniski is leaving for a new challenge, according to a farewell email seen by Secondaries Investor. He no longer appears on Montana’s website.
“I have enjoyed my experience here and want to thank everyone for the friendships, trust, and support,” Koniski wrote.
Prior to joining Montana, Koniski spent almost a decade at Northleaf Capital Partners, where he focused on sourcing, executing and monitoring secondary, co-investment and primary private equity investments, mainly in Europe and in the energy sector, according to his LinkedIn profile.
Koniski’s departure comes two years after Montana agreed to be acquired by PGIM, the asset management arm of insurance company Prudential Financial. Christian Diller, who was one of Montana’s founding partners, left the firm last year, as Secondaries Investor reported.
Montana raised €1.3 billion for mcp Opportunity Secondary Program V in 2020, beating its €1 billion target, according to Secondaries Investor data.
Transactions the firm has backed this year include leading a €250 million single-asset continuation fund process involving a German medical care centre operator Sanecum Group, managed by mid-market-focused investor Adiuva Capital.
A spokesperson for Montana did not return a request for comment.
