Peter Benedict

Ex-Founder & Managing Partner Emeritus

Linkedin

Peter brings a wealth of experience and broad network of contacts in the wireless, networking, telecommunications, cloud, and analytics spaces, having held executive leadership positions at service providers, networking, and enterprise application vendors in both the United States and Europe.

Most recently Peter served as Vice President and head of Alcatel-Lucent’s Customer Experience Analytics business. In this role Peter was responsible for strategy, product development, R&D, and P&L for a suite of Big Data products that address the analytics needs of its service provider customers – from operations and customer care to marketing and C-suite executives.

Previously to that GM role, Peter was based in Paris where he served as head of Alcatel-Lucent’s global public relations organization, and sat on the company’s Executive Marketing Board. Peter originally joined Alcatel-Lucent via Bell Labs, Alcatel-Lucent’s pre-eminent research laboratory.

Prior to Alcatel-Lucent, Peter held a series of strategy, product marketing, and communications roles at a number of networking, telecom, and enterprise communications start-ups as well as Ardent Communications, a tier one broadband service provider in the United States.  Peter also headed up marketing for RADVISION, an Israeli videoconferencing infrastructure vendor.

He holds a Bachelor’s degree in International Relations from the University of Virginia and brings a broad international perspective both from his senior role in multinational companies as well as his experience in living and working in Europe, and, earlier, spending his youth in the Middle East and Africa.

"Peter is that rare breed in the M&A world that is able to leverage his real world experience and success in industry, with a keen ability to match companies and needs and see the process through from creation to completion. He is thorough and detailed oriented yet sees the big picture (and even creates it when necessary). He is relentless, but not in an “in your face” way. Working with Peter is a delight and I would HIGHLY recommend him."

Jeff Matros, President & CEO at STRAAM Corporation

 

"Peter is one of the few bankers I would recommend to anyone. His integrity, technical expertise, high level contacts, and strategic understanding of the underlying trends in the tech and telecoms market really brought huge value. But what was an unexpected plus is the value that his background in marketing and communications brought. He was able to craft and communicate a powerful value-driven message which he then tailored to each of the targets and sub-categories we were going after. It was a real pleasure working with someone who knows the space so well and drove a professional sales process with an intensity and true passion."

Sanjay Rohatgi, Board Member at MobiDough Inc.

 

"I worked with Peter while he was at Bois Capital. Peter had the right kind and level of contacts to cast a wide net for the work we did together. Once we were in a position to pitch, Peter's understanding of the space helped make sure the discussion resonated with the strategic goals of the target. I'd recommend the Bois Capital team to anyone looking at M&A in the telco analytics space."
