Inflexion grows team for 2011

Well positioned for opportunities in the year ahead

Inflexion Private Equity, the mid-market private equity investor, is pleased to announce that it has strengthened its investment team and added further depth to its finance and governance team with the appointments of Philip Edmans and Chun Lei Ng.

Philip joins Inflexion’s team as an Investment Executive from Gleacher Shacklock, where he was involved in a number of corporate finance advisory transactions including the 2010 refinancing of iSOFT. Prior to this, Philip was a manager within the corporate finance team at PricewaterhouseCoopers. There he specialised in mid-market consumer products transactions, including advising Inflexion on their exit from Ilchester Cheese in 2008.

Chun Lei joins Inflexion from Deloitte’s investment management audit team where he worked with clients in the private equity, hedge fund and asset management sectors. He is a Chartered Accountant.

Simon Turner, Managing Partner at Inflexion commented “We are delighted to welcome Philip and Chun Lei to Inflexion; they bring experience and skills which will enrich our team as we continue to build our business.”

“As we enter 2011, the Inflexion team can take advantage of its hard work and strong performance in 2010; our portfolio performed well, we completed three new deals and sold our investment in ICS to Blackstone. In addition, we received strong support from the LP community and raised our latest fund in just four months.”

Inflexion’s portfolio performance has demonstrated that outstanding businesses continue to thrive in spite of challenging market conditions; 4 portfolio companies rank in this weekend’s Sunday Times Buyout Track 100 and FDM has been recognised in the top 15 of high growth companies across Europe at the recent European Growth Summit in Germany.
