Lionel Giacomotto

Managing Partner

Lionel Giacomotto has been Managing Partner of Charterhouse since 2011.

Lionel joined Charterhouse in 1993 and in his early years was centrally involved in a number of UK investments. From the end of the 1990s, Lionel’s focus was building on Charterhouse’s longstanding presence in France and he successfully expanded the Firm’s investment activity and reputation there.

More recently, Lionel has been instrumental in overseeing the expansion of the Firm’s Continental European activities, resulting in recent investments in Germany, Italy and Benelux.  At the same time he has helped drive the internationalisation of the Charterhouse Investment Team which, still located in one London office, now includes investment professionals of six different European nationalities.

Born and educated in France, Lionel is a Paris Dauphine University graduate.
