Carmine Capital strengthens its expertise in the Healthcare industry with the arrival of Benoit Traineau.
Carmine Capital is proud to announce the arrival of Benoit Traineau as Senior Advisor. This appointment reinforces Carmine Capital’s expertise in a complex and constantly evolving industry.
30 years’ experience in the healthcare industry
Benoit Traineau, an expert in the healthcare sector, brings with him a wealth of experience spanning more than 30 years in the industry. He has held senior positions with prestigious international companies such as Coloplast, 3M, Johnson and Johnson, and Diasorin. In recent years, he has distinguished himself as a strategy consultant, bringing his expertise to the managers of numerous French SMEs to help them develop their international presence, optimize their processes and structure their financing.
Benoit Traineau expressed his motivation for joining Carmine Capital: “The healthcare sector is deep and varied. I’ve had the chance to work in all the main markets, whether in the field of drugs, medical devices or diagnostics, and to manage different distribution channels: hospital and pharmacy, in France and abroad. I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate actively with all the players in the sector, from clinicians to caregivers, from regulatory authorities to patient associations, via trade associations. But what impressed me the most was the ability of healthcare executives to manage the usual tasks of business leaders while integrating the countless requirements specific to the healthcare sector, i.e. thinking first of the patient, taking into account regulations, market access, and many other aspects besides.”
Accelerating concentration of players
He added: “These leaders offer innovative solutions to patients and healthcare professionals, while at the same time developing exciting entrepreneurial ventures. The new period of inflation and its consequences on pricing management represent an additional factor of complexity for the healthcare industries. What’s more, the healthcare sector is seeing an acceleration in the concentration of players, making it all the more important for managers of medium-sized companies to be well-equipped to meet these new challenges. That’s why I wanted to join Carmine Capital, which for over 10 years has been successfully implementing a tailor-made approach to assisting managers with their capital transactions. At Carmine, I met a team that combines strong ethical values, functional expertise and a pragmatic approach.”
