Christopher Masek
CEO at IK Investment Partners


Chris has been CEO of IK Investment Partners since 2015. He joined IK in 2000 to establish the firm’s presence in France, prior to which he was a founding partner of KPMG Corporate Finance in Paris.

While at IK, Chris has been instrumental in the execution of a significant number of deals across Europe, has managed the succession from the firm’s founder generation and dramatically transformed IK from a single strategy mid-market buyout firm to a multi-strategy pan-European platform, more than doubling the size of the organisation.

Christopher holds degrees from Institut d'Etudes Politiques de Paris (Sciences Po), Yale University and in French law.
