Rudy is a multilingual international entrepreneur, who over a thirty-year career has been involved in 28 start-ups and turnarounds, across eight countries in a variety of sectors. These include: automotive manufacturing, distribution and retail; telecommunications; food processing; financial services; aviation; production & distribution of chemicals; real estate.
As a co-founder of SI Capital Partners, initially set up as a M&A advisory boutique in 2004, Rudy has advised various corporates such as General Motors, AvtoVAZ, Aerospatiale and the largest Russian telco, MTS.
Capitalising on market conditions, in 2009, SICP expanded its activities into the purchase of companies requiring turnaround, in the process acquiring businesses such as Dodoni (the leading manufacturer of Feta in Greece), Delta Motor Group (KIA and Mitsubishi distributor with 25 dealership outlets across Finland), and IAL (an operational leasing business in Russia).
In 2016, Rudy bought out his partners at SICP, and embarked upon an exit strategy, successfully exiting seven of the eight investments.
Rudy is now focused on his M&A advisory activities through SICP, and is investing in real estate and concession projects in his private capacity.
Rudy has a Law Degree from SOAS (London) and studied for an MBA/Troisieme Cycle at Pennsylvania State University (USA) and the Centre d’Etude et Renseignment Applique au Management (France).
