Matthew Frankel and Michael Weinberg, managing partners of LLCP, said, “We are delighted that Josh has assumed leadership of our European operations. During his tenure with LLCP, Josh has played an integral role in expanding our business and executing many of our successful investments in the region. Elevating Josh to become Head of Europe is a well-deserved and natural evolution following John’s transition to Senior Advisor. We are very excited for what lies ahead for LLCP in Europe.”
