Inflexion has named Andrew Stevens and George Collier as partners as part of a series of promotions across the 120-strong UK private equity firm.
Stevens is responsible for Inflexion’s corporate legal, governance and compliance activities, while Collier focuses on firm strategy and is heavily involved in Inflexion’s capital raising activities as well as having oversight of a number of non-investment related functions.
The promotions follow the fundraising of its Buyout Fund VI, which closed at GBP 2.5bn in March, as reported. Over the past half year, the GP invested in seven businesses with a combined value of GBP 1.8bn, including CMDO group Upperton and construction equipment parts distributor Astrak. Additionally, it agreed to the divestment of seven businesses with a combined value of GBP 2.4bn, including the exit of Global Reach in a trade sale and Goals Soccer Centre, a football arena operator.
Inflexion has also made a number of other promotions. In the investment team, Andreas Constantinides, Rob Dagger, Ravi Shah, Adam Moss, James Stevens and Richard Wootten have been promoted to investment director, while Joost Storms and Josh Butterick have been promoted to assistant directors.
In the portfolio and finance team, Ben Rinck has been promoted to portfolio assistant director, and Nancy Kelleher has been promoted to compensation manager.
Inflexion has also been expanding its team with 15 appointments in 1H22.
The new joiners include Henrik Nordman, who joined as an investment director from Bridgepoint after a decade of experience of private equity investing across Europe and the Nordics with a focus on business services, as well as Olivia Lonsdale, who joined as an investment executive from PwC.
