Unitas Capital, an Asian private equity firm, has appointed Xiaolu Lian as a managing director, based in Shanghai. Lian previously spent 11 years at BNP Paribas, most recently as managing director and chief representative of the bank’s Shanghai office.
“Xiaolu brings exceptional breadth and depth of experience to our China team,” said Andrew Liu, Unitas’ managing partner and CEO. “He has held senior management positions in both the state and private sectors, and the depth of his relationships with large PRC companies is expected to further strengthen Unitas’ deal sourcing capabilities in China.”
Unitas Capital manages some $4 billion in total commitments and specialises in the consumer and retail and industrial manufacturing and services sectors.
