Can you introduce yourself in a few words? Your age, your family situation and the country you live in?

Kevin

I am 31 years old and married to Katharina since last year (2021). I moved to Frankfurt in 2011, but also spent 2 years in Sweden from 2014 to 2016.

Tell us about your career and how you joined Argos.

Kevin

I joined Argos in the summer of 2019 after working in investment banking at Lincoln International for three years.

Is this the path you thought you would take when you started your studies?

Kevin

It is not the path I thought I would take when I started my studies but it has been so at least since I did my first internship in private equity. At that time, I was impressed by the entrepreneurial mindset and flexibility required in the job compared with other fields of finance.

The world of private equity has changed a lot in recent years. What is your definition of PE? How do you see it?

Kevin

For me private equity is identifying businesses with untapped potential for growth. This has become much more difficult in recent years, however, as the industry has become steadily more competitive. The most obvious places for value creation have already been snapped up, and the sell side has become more professional and anticipates most of the upside. This is why our approach and our hands-on mentality is so important. We know how to uncover more complex situations with less obvious paths to value creation.

What encounter - or moment - stands out in your time at Argos?

Kevin

For me it was a few weeks after I joined Argos when I first met the whole European team in person. I realized how large the firm actually was and how close the collaboration between our offices is.

Some say we are the average of the people we meet. What do you think?

Kevin

I think this is especially true for the impressive founders, entrepreneurs and managers we meet in our business. Their success stories, determination and out-of-the-box ideas for the future can really have a strong impact on you and your own thinking!

Outside of your job, what are your passions or commitments?

Kevin

I am an enthusiastic tennis player and runner and spend my time outside my job with my wife, friends or a good book.
