Christian Dorléac


Christian is a Partner and the Head of Abenex Croissance. He is originally from Paris and, as the son of an industrial professional, he has always been interested in how businesses operate. Private equity has enabled him to combine sourcing high potential but under-managed businesses alongside working closely with management. Christian has over 25 years’ experience in the small-cap sector in France, firstly at AXA and then as Founding Partner of TCR Capital, where he worked on over 40 transactions as well as 25 add-on investments. His passion for private equity led him to lecture on the subject for 13 years at ESSEC.

“Above all, our businesses consist of men and women who support a life-long project: Abenex shares this vision of business.”
