Cécile Mayer Lévi

Cécile Mayer Lévi joined Tikehau Capital in 2013 as Head of Private Debt activity. She has built a talented team to become one of the leading players in Europe in private debt, in particular in direct lending and is actively involved with a very hands-on role in closing transactions, chasing opportunities and monitoring investments. To date, she has arranged over 150 financing transactions and was one of the pioneers of the private debt strategy. Cécile previously worked at Ardian (formerly AXA Private Equity) where she notably broadened the investment scope to include unitranche debt, with a strong focus on forming partnerships with portfolio companies and Private Equity shareholders. She began her career in 1988 at Merrill Lynch (Corporate Finance and M&A) in Paris and then in New York. In 2001, Cécile's focus pivoted to mezzanine debt investments, and she was appointed Investment Director at Omnes (formerly CAPE - Mezzanis). Cécile sits as observer on the board of over 20 companies, where she contributes her 360° view to their management teams across a diversified range of industries.
