Olivier Delrieu joins MBO+ as Partner

Olivier Delrieu, former Chairman and CEO of Groupe Trescal and a seasoned director of several LBO companies, joins MBO+, the leading private equity investment firm in the French lower mid-cap market.

Olivier’s arrival further strengthens MBO+’s multi-sector expertise and operational capabilities in supporting growth companies. Drawing on his experience as a business leader recognized for his ability to drive development through acquisition and integration, Olivier will complement the investment team in steering its value-creation strategies.

Olivier Delrieu is widely acknowledged for his exceptional track record in leading the remarkable growth of the Trescal group, which has solidified its position as the European leader and a global frontrunner in calibration and metrology. His strategic vision and extensive operational experience will now be channeled towards MBO+’s investment strategies, particularly enhancing its Buy & Build initiatives.

“This collaboration is the natural evolution of my longstanding partnership with the MBO+ teams,” remarked Olivier Delrieu. “I am excited to continue my journey with a firm celebrated for its unwavering commitment to operational excellence and sustainable value creation. My experience aligns seamlessly with the strategy of empowering the entrepreneurs and managers we support.”

Olivier Delrieu will assume a pivotal role in spearheading MBO+’s Buy and Build activities, a market segment in which MBO+ has demonstrated prominence. The recent success story of Sequoiasoft, which achieved significant growth through six strategic acquisitions and subsequently secured a successful sale to Septeo, exemplifies MBO+’s leadership in this domain.

“We are honored and extremely pleased to welcome Olivier Delrieu to the team,” stated Xavier de Prévoisin, Partner at MBO+. “His energy, his reputation in the market and his track-record are invaluable assets for our companies. We are convinced that his experience will enrich our approach and contribute significantly to our continued development, at the service of our companies and the performance of our investments”.
