Delenclos brings more than 15 years of experience to his new role of Director in BCG’s Principal Investors & Private Equity Practice (PIPE) – an arm which formally launched in 2015. He will be based out of the firm’s London office, and takes responsibility for advising investors on strategy and operations, covering everything from investment strategy, operating models and governance to due diligence and post-merger integration.

Tawfik Hammoud, the Global Leader of the PIPE practice, says, “Francois-Xavier brings a wealth of experience across geographies and industries. It is a privilege for me to welcome him to our fast-developing European PIPE team.” Delenclos remarks, “I was drawn by BCG’s strong brand, international reach, and reputation for strategic value creation in the private equity sector and beyond.”

Late last year BCG added two senior advisors to its PIPE practice in the US: John Perkins and Christy Carter, both are alumni of another direct rival, Bain & Company. In the UK, the firm in October bolstered the leadership team of BCG Digital Ventures (the firm's design, digital and incubation arm) with three new partners.
