13 July 2010 – TVM Capital MENA has announced the promotion of Youssef Haidar to Partner. Youssef has proved a pivotal member of the TVM Capital MENA team since the start of investment operations with its Shari’a-Compliant Healthcare Growth Capital Fund in February 2010.
“Youssef has played a vital role in the development of TVM Capital MENA with his involvement in deal origination, syndication and closing,” said Dr. Helmut Schühsler, managing partner of TVM Capital. “Most recently Mr Haidar has made a significant contribution to the closing of the fund’s first investment, Pro Vita in Abu Dhabi, which is consistent with our strategy for targeting specialty operators addressing regional medical needs that are either completely unmet, or not adequately addressed. His wide range of skills and international experience make him a valuable addition to the senior team.” Youssef currently serves on the Board of Directors of Pro Vita Holding Company for the MENA region.
With on-the-ground transaction advisory, business development and investment banking experience in 12 countries, Youssef was previously Managing Director at Unifund Capital Financial Investments in Abu Dhabi. Youssef spent the early part of his professional career with PricewaterhouseCoopers’s corporate finance and transaction advisory units in London and Lebanon.
Youssef completed his Bachelor in Banking and Finance at the Lebanese American University in Beirut and a Masters in Accounting and Finance at Kingston University, London.
