David Reis, who was formerly the head of technology at Goldman Sachs’s merchant banking division in Europe, joined Warburg Pincus in October as a principal in the industrial and business services team, according to a person familiar with the matter.
Reis joined Goldman in 2005 and was promoted to managing partner in 2015. He worked within Goldman’s direct private investing division, making investments in industrial and technology companies in Europe.
He will work closely with Stefan Krause, a former Deutsche Bank and BMW executive, who joined the firm as a senior adviser in June, the person said.
The private equity firm has also hired Flavio Porciani as a vice president in its technology media and telecommunications team, who joined the firm in October. Porciani previously worked at private equity firm Searchlight Capital Partners for four years and prior to that was an analyst at Blackstone Group.
Warburg Pincus has made a number of changes in its London team this year after closing its latest global fund at $ 12 billion in 2015.
Daniel Zilberman was promoted to head of Europe in January. The firm also appointed Jim Hagemann Snabe as a senior adviser in June.
