Leading global private equity healthcare specialist ARCHIMED is expanding its New York City office with five appointments, adding to transfers from the Lyon office.

January 26, 2021 – The new hires at ARCHIMED’s New York office are Partner Justin Bateman; Principal of Investor Relations Monica Holec; Associate Director Anthony Farias; and Strategic Partners Carlos Alonso and Nick Pachuda. They are joining company Chairman Denis Ribon and Partner Antoine Faguer.

Justin Bateman joins from BC Partners, where he rose to Managing Partner during a 20-year career and co-founded the group’s New York office in 2008. He was a member of BC’s investment committee and led 14 transactions across North America and Europe representing approximately $3 billion of invested capital with an emphasis on the healthcare space.

Monica Holec was a Senior Managing Director and Head of Investor Relations at Levine Leichtman Capital Partners (“LLCP”). During her decade-long career at LLCP, Monica was responsible for internalizing the investor relations and fundraising function and managing the firm’s LP relationships globally.

Anthony Farias previously worked as a private equity professional at MacAndrews & Forbes. He began his career at JP Morgan in the healthcare group. He holds an MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

Carlos Alonso has over 30 years of international operating experience in the healthcare industry, most recently as President of the International Division at Hill-Rom Holdings. Carlos is the Chairman of the Board of Direct Healthcare Group (DHG), a portfolio company of ARCHIMED headquartered in the United Kingdom.

Nick Pachuda is a former Orthopedics Surgeon who spent the past 17 years developing new product strategies and cross-selling opportunities for a range of healthcare businesses. He most recently served as the leader and Worldwide Vice-President of Orthopedic Innovation for Johnson and Johnson Medical Devices Group.

Denis Ribon, Chairman, commented, “We are thrilled with the addition of Monica, Justin, Anthony, Carlos and Nick to the ARCHIMED team. They bring a wealth of experience to the firm, expanding on the 45 professionals in Europe who also have significant US operating and investment experience. The US is a key market for us, as our European investments derive most of their revenues from this side of the Atlantic. Our proven success in this market was reinforced in 2020 by four completed investments across the healthcare IT, medical devices and CRO sectors. Our recent investment in Ohio-based NAMSA, a global leading medical device CRO business and add-on of New York based Syntactx are great examples of our demonstrated expertise of scaling market leading healthcare businesses globally.”

Justin Bateman, Partner, commented “I am excited to be joining the team at ARCHIMED. They have established a world class combination of healthcare, operational and investment professionals alongside its MedTalentsTM network that are highly appealing. ARCHIMED’s target sectors have significant international reach, and the Firm’s operational capability in both Europe and the US are valuable drivers to maximizing growth and delivering outsized investment returns for our limited partners.”
