Inflexion announces Partner promotion

Inflexion Private Equity is pleased to announce the promotion of Mark Williams from Investment Director to Partner with immediate effect.

Mark joined the investment team in 2011 and has been involved in a number of transactions including the firm’s investment in Reed & Mackay, the premium corporate travel company, last month; the carve-out of Kynetec; and the £92m buyout of Alcumus; he sits on the board of all three companies. Mark was also closely involved in the buyout and subsequent exit of CTC Aviation Group, one of the world’s largest independent pilot training companies, which generated a 3x return in May 2015.

In addition to the promotion of Mark Williams, Inflexion is pleased to announce Andrew Neville has today joined the investment team as an Assistant Director. Andrew joins from Octopus Healthcare where he was involved in the financing, construction and opening of a new entrant to the UK private hospital market and the acquisitive build-up of a new operator in the UK special needs schools space. Prior to Octopus, Andrew worked in the healthcare team at GI Partners and prior to that was at Three Delta and PwC Corporate Finance.

Simon Turner, Managing Partner at Inflexion, commented: “We are delighted to announce Mark’s promotion and the addition of Andy to our team, enhancing our sector expertise across healthcare and education. Mark has made a significant contribution over many years and his promotion to Partner is well-deserved.”

Mark’s promotion follows a busy summer for Inflexion having invested in Reed & Mackay in August and backed its portfolio company, GRP’s, acquisition of FC Exchange in the same month. In addition, Inflexion again topped Preqin’s Consistent Performing Fund Managers list in the 2016 Preqin Global Private Equity & Venture Capital Report issued in August, with all qualifying funds top quartile. Inflexion is the only UK firm to feature in the top 20.
