Paladin Capital Group, the multi-stage investor specialising in cyber and advanced technology, is delighted to announce that Kenneth Pentimonti has been promoted to Managing Director.
Ken joined Paladin’s investment team in 2002 and now leads Paladin’s European operations, having opened the firm’s first office in the region in London in 2015, followed by Luxembourg in 2016. Ken has since built a powerful investment platform for Paladin with relationships throughout the European cyber ecosystem and investor community.
Paladin’s success is driven by its ability to identify and execute investments in new, compelling innovations as an early entrant. With Ken’s support, Paladin has invested in 19 early stage companies operating in Europe, and is actively investing its €370m Cyber Fund II in cyber and security-focused AI startups across the continent. Ken has led investments in a wide range of innovative cyber companies across Europe including automated threat modeling platform IriusRisk, cyber insurance provider Intangic, application testing company Virtuoso and data clean room provider Decentriq.
Michael Steed, Founder and Managing Partner, commented, “Ken’s promotion is testament to the huge contribution he has made to Paladin’s international growth and the performance of our portfolio.
