Peru & Partners, part of IQ-EQ, strengthens Valuation and CFO Secondment service lines with senior appointment

Peru & Partners, an IQ-EQ group company and specialist fund services provider for the French private equity market, has strengthened its Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Secondment practice and Valuation Advisory team with the appointment of Amaury de la Porte du Theil as Director.

Amaury joins Peru & Partners as Director of the firm’s growing Valuation and CFO Secondment service lines. Having started his career as an auditor with Arthur Andersen, he now brings to this newly created position more than 20 years of experience in corporate finance and in the financial management of private assets and entrepreneurship management companies.

Founder of Paris-based financial consulting firm Eulalie, Amaury is a seasoned senior leader who has previously been CFO of a number of French investment firms, including venture capital fund Ventech VC and the mid-market private equity firm Activa Capital. Before starting his own business, he was CFO and Head of Administration, Finance and HR for Capital Fund Management, an international alternative asset company with US$10 billion under management.

Sébastien Péru, leader of Peru & Partners and Head of Fund Services for IQ-EQ France, commented:

I am delighted to welcome Amaury to Péru & Partners as we enhance the leadership of our Valuation and CFO service lines in order to better serve our clients and facilitate future growth in France, the world’s fourth largest private equity market. I have no doubt that with his extensive financial leadership expertise he will be a great asset to the team as we continue driving our business forward.”

In addition to Amaury coming on board as Director, Peru & Partners has made multiple other team growth appointments and two Manager promotions in recent weeks across its CFO Secondment, Valuation and Fund Accounting teams – further expanding and fortifying these key service areas. Those promoted are Arthur Dorado, who specialises in accounting, tax and regulatory issues in the private equity funds space, and Niels Leonard, whose focus is on fund administration accounting and the monitoring of holding structures. Arthur joined the business in 2017 and has now been promoted to Manager, CFO Secondment, while Niels has part of the team since 2016 and is now Manager, Accounting.
