After spending close to three years with FTI Consulting, Tsvetelina Delcheva has joined mid-market private equity investor ECI Partners in the role of Origination Manager.

Based in FTI Consulting’s London office and a member of the Transaction Services team, Delcheva was responsible for tracking deal pipelines, identifying investments for private equity funds, and shortlisting acquisition targets.

Earlier in her career, Delcheva was worked at global expert network Gerson Lehrman Group, where she managed a portfolio of private equity and investment firms, with a focus on mid-market private equity firms based in the DACH (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) region.

Now at ECI Partners, Delcheva will work with the investment team to originate investment opportunities with a particular focus on the European market.

“Our Origination Team play an integral role within our firm through generating new deal flow, maintaining relationships with key corporate finance advisers and meeting businesses. Tsvetelina’s appointment will be essential in helping ECI invest in fast growth businesses across the European market and to continue to deliver exceptional results,” said David Ewing, Managing Partner at ECI Partners.

London-based ECI Partners invests in growing businesses valued up to £300 million. The firm has realised over 100 investments since its inception over four decades ago. “I'm looking forward to working together with the rest of the ECI Partners team to discover and partner with more fantastic growth businesses,” said Delcheva on her new challenge.

Asked what drew her to the new role, Delcheva said, “ECI Partners places a great deal of importance on creating a culture that allows people to develop and progress, and I am looking forward to take the next step in my career.”

Delcheva joins the private equity industry at a time of unprecedented opportunity. Last year, the amount of capital available at private equity firms worldwide (known as ‘dry powder’) reached a record $3.4 trillion, according to Bain & Company research. Meanwhile, both the large and mid-market segments enjoyed a record breaking year in 2021.
