Partner


“With a strong, extensive background investing in Europe, I never imagined investing in Africa before joining MCP. I was strongly attracted by MCP’s business model, clearly oriented towards value creation, and by its professional and friendly culture and values. Today, I enjoy working alongside this amazing group of people and I am very proud to be one of them.”

Daniel has fifteen years of investment and asset management experience in the PE industry. He worked for 3i investing in a wide range of businesses operating in different sectors including general industry, retail, transport & logistics, IT services, chemicals, media and construction. He has contributed to and led over twenty deals in both Buyouts and Capital Growth in Spain and France, and has been involved in the divestment process of thirteen companies. Daniel has a wide network of contacts in the M&A industry, both in Spain and Europe, through international networks with a presence in Spain. He also has strong contacts in the banking sector from his experience leading 3i’s banking strategy in Spain from 2004 to 2006.

Before joining 3i, Daniel held the position of Manager at PricewaterhouseCoopers where he accrued seven years of audit and M&A experience in the transaction services and financial advisory services teams.

Daniel has been involved in large deals including Sistemas Técnicos de Encofrados and Loxam (rental of equipment for the construction sector) and Boomerang TV (TV production); the buyouts of La Sirena (frozen food retail), Global Energy Services (construction and maintenance of wind and eolic farms), Panreac (chemical reagents) and Grupo Pomar (retail fitting); the successful buy and build, and subsequent sale of Pepe Jeans (fashion retail) and TG+ (express parcels).

Daniel has accumulated a wealth of experience in asset management. He has sat on over eighteen boards (with an average length of three years per board), in different businesses and sectors, with a strong hands-on approach which allowed him to play an active role in both growth and expansion strategies, as well as in restructurings. Since January 2012 Daniel’s current asset management responsibilities (which include sitting on the board of Mediterrània Capital I’s Moroccan companies) have been augmented by an interim management position in the Spanish frozen food retailer La Sirena, where his experience contributes to the improvement of cash management focus and control as well as the implementation of debt and cost restructuring programs.

Daniel holds an AMP from the IESE Business School (Spain) and degrees in Economics and Sociology from the University of Barcelona (Spain). He attended the French School of Barcelona.

Daniel sits on the Board of several portfolio companies managed by Mediterrania Capital I and II funds.
