The New York-based firm, which was founded by two Coller partners, hired Clement Beaudin as a vice-president, according to its website. Beaudin, who is based in New York, spent four years at Coller and previously worked at energy and power-focused private equity firm Riverstone.
“We’re thrilled to bring Clement on board as we continue to build a team with both a deep experience in complex secondaries and a long history of having worked together,” managing partner Sebastien Burdel told Secondaries Investor.
Beaudin’s hire follows that of fellow Coller alum Raudel Yanez who joined as a director in January. Burdel told Secondaries Investor in January that the firm intended to hire several additional staff at vice-president or director level over the next few months.
Last November the firm hired Anwer Farooqui, Abu Dhabi Investment Authority’s former secondaries head, as a senior advisor.
Burdel and former Coller partner Luca Salvato launched Spring Bridge in 2017. The firm focuses on GP-led transactions, spin-outs, structured deals involving loans, preferred debt or preferred equity, and liquidity to GPs, according to its website.
