London – 22 May, 2019 – Jayne Zecha, a London-based partner with Bain & Company and sector leader of the firm’s media team in its EMEA Private Equity practice, has been recognized by Private Equity News as one of its 2019 Top 25 Rising Stars of European Private Equity.
“Jayne is part of an extraordinary team of Bain Private Equity leaders in the UK, across EMEA, and globally. As a firm, we are explicitly doubling down on our leadership position in Private Equity to drive differential impact with our clients, create professional and career development opportunities for our people, and to accelerate our overall growth as a firm,” said Christophe De Vusser, a partner with Bain & Company and the head of the firm’s Private Equity practice in EMEA. “I’m thrilled that her impact has been recognized and, on behalf of the entire firm, I’m pleased to congratulate her on this extraordinary achievement.”
Bain London and Zecha play a critical role in the firm’s Private Equity growth ambitions. Under Zecha’s leadership, the Bain’s Telecommunications Media and Technology (TMT) private equity revenue has grown by 10 to 15 percent per year since 2017, with media revenues more than doubling over this period.
In charge of a 25 person team, Zecha is responsible for helping companies with deal screening and due diligence, as well as for developing relationships with new clients, with a particular focus on mid-market businesses.
Zecha joined Bain in 2002 as an associate consultant, was promoted to partner in 2017 and in June 2018 became the firm’s shortest-tenured partner to be a sector lead. She earned her MBA from Harvard Business School.
