Keyhaven promotes three

by Krystal Scanlon 13 July 2022

Keyhaven Capital Partners has promoted Zaid Tabani to head of finance, Yunzhen Zhao to head of fund accounting and Sarah Baha to head of compliance.

Tabani has been with Keyhaven for the past eight-and-a-half years, having joined the firm as senior fund accountant in November 2013. He was then promoted to his most recent role, senior finance manager in July 2017. In his new role as head of finance, Tabani manages the day-to-day back office and fund administration for Keyhaven funds.

Zhao joined the firm in March 2016 as fund accountant. He was then promoted to his most recent role, senior fund accountant in June 2018. In his new role as head of fund accounting, Zhao assists with the management of day-to-day back office and fund administration for Keyhaven funds.

Baha has been with Keyhaven since April 2018, having initially joined as compliance officer. After four years she was promoted to her most recent role, compliance manager. In her new role as head of compliance, Baha is responsible for the day-to-day management of Keyhaven’s compliance function.

“This latest round of promotions is a testament to the breadth and depth of talent we have developed across our team as we continue to find a compelling level of opportunities in lower middle-market European businesses,” commented Claus Stenbaek, managing partner at Keyhaven. “I look forward to working closely with all of our recent promotees as they take on wider responsibilities within our organisation and I extend a hearty congratulations to each of them.”

These three appointments are part of a wider set of promotions across the rest of Keyhaven’s business.
