Inflexion adds US capability

Inflexion Private Equity today announces that it has expanded into North America with a focus on supporting portfolio company M&A and broader business development. Inflexion-backed businesses will benefit from direct access to an experienced, senior North American professional with an established network, offering local insight and direct access to this key market.

Inflexion’s North American presence will be based in Boston and led by Whitney Bower, who joins as Senior Adviser. Whit brings with him over 25 years of experience in building businesses, including working with BC Partners, HgCapital and 3i, and has an MBA from Harvard Business School.  In 2014, he founded Noble Rock Advisors, an investment and advisory firm.


Inflexion has a consistent strategy of backing ambitious businesses to grow through M&A, digital enhancement and international expansion, with portfolio companies set to benefit from the firm’s enhanced global presence. To date, the firm has backed 30 international acquisitions in 17 countries for its portfolio companies, which have operations spanning 70 countries. Inflexion’s portfolio companies have been operating in the US since 2004, and a number have made strategic acquisitions of US-based businesses. Examples of US M&A include Halo Technology’s acquisition of Add-On Computer Peripherals, Kynetec’s acquisition of Market Probe and CloserStill’s acquisition of several US-based conferences.
