Mr.  De Vusser, the former managing partner of Bain & Company’s Brussels office, will serve as the regional Private Equity practice leader in EMEA.  In this role, he will be responsible for further accelerating the growth of Bain’s private equity business, with a specific focus on business and client development, external recruiting to support the practice’s growth, as well as the management of the practice’s consultants and professional staff.

Mr. De Vusser has extensive experience in deal advisory and post-acquisition work for portfolio companies owned by financial investors. He has supported a wide range of due diligence efforts across both private equity and corporate mergers & acquisitions, in addition to fund strategy for a variety of investors.

“Christophe is a key advisor to our clients with deep insights on the rapidly changing private equity landscape across Europe, the Middle East and Africa,” said Mr. MacArthur. “I am confident that under his leadership, we will continue to strengthen our client and people assets and build on our reputation as a trusted advisor to the private equity industry.”
