Vienna– Alex joins as one of the founding members of Alantra Austria & CEE, bringing to the platform more than 20 years of investment banking experience across Emerging Europe and Austria and an extensive track record in both sell-side and buy-side advisory. Before joining Alantra, she was Global Co-Head of UniCredit’s Consumer and Retail practice within Corporate Finance Advisory and spearheaded the Capital Structure Advisory practice for CEE corporate clients in diverse industries.
“I am very happy to be joining the talented and energic team of seasoned professionals at Alantra. The cross-border mid-market deal space is especially compelling in the smaller markets of Austria and CEE, not just in Consumer & Retail, but in other sectors as well. And Alantra’s commitment to delivering best-in-class, independent M&A advisory on the back of its wide geographic footprint and deep sector and execution expertise is an excellent fit with client needs in this space.”
Notable recent deals include advising on the sale of Frisch & Frost (a leading frozen foods player in Austria) to Vivatis, advising Advent International on the sale of Devin (Bulgaria’s leading bottled water producer) to Spadel and advising Pivovarna La≈°ko (Slovenia’s #1 brewer) on the sale to Heineken, after having advised on Lasko’s earlier disposal of its non-core businesses Radenska (Slovenia’s #1 mineral water player), Birra Peja (#1 brewery in Kosovo) and Fructal (a leading fruit juice producer in Southeast Europe) in one of the most successful corporate restructurings in CEE.”
