Federico Leproux and his team have done an outstanding job to strengthen TeamSystem’s offering and more than triple the company’s revenues. Our investment in TeamSystem which started over seven years ago is a great example of H&F’s approach to long-term value creation. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Federico and his outstanding management team.”
