Vincent Gouedard, who joined Abenex in 2014, has been promoted to Manager within Abenex’s operational team.
Vincent worked in the investment team of the Abenex MidCaps fund for 4 years during which he was involved in the acquisition of stakes in Cisbio and Hygeco. Drawing on this experience, he joined the operational team to support the development of these investments. For more than 10 years, Abenex has had a team dedicated to the operational support of its investments: 4 people are thus at the service of managers for the implementation of their development projects, particularly external growth and integration.
