Guido Gamucci

Guido Gamucci is chairman of Permira's operation in Asia. Previously responsible for the firm's Milan office, he relocated to Japan in 2005 and is poised to move to Hong Kong when the UK buyout group opens its second office in the region next year. In October, Permira made headlines for doing not just one, but two large deals in Asia. First came an $838 million investment for a 20 percent stake in Galaxy Entertainment, a Macau-based casino operator; then followed a $2.2 billion secondary deal to acquire Arysta Lifescience, a Japanese agrochemical company, from Olympus Capital. For Permira, it was the first investment in Japan since its arrival two years ago.
