Inflexion is pleased to announce that it has appointed Freddy West as Talent Director. Freddy brings significant experience of working with private equity portfolio companies to apply talent and human capital best practices to accelerate the growth of their businesses.
Freddy joins from British International Investment (formerly CDC Group), where she served as Director of Portfolio Management for seven years, leading their Human Capital function and supporting the Chairs, CEOs and Executives across their global portfolio companies. In her time there she helped enhance the firm’s investment process, expand their expert networks and drive portfolio company growth.
With people crucial to the success of businesses, Inflexion places great emphasis on ensuring its portfolio has the right people in the right roles and the right human capital strategies. Talent and human capital enhancement is one of Inflexion’s value acceleration levers, a core set of strategies proven to deliver sustainable growth and create long-term value in the companies it backs. These are M&A, international expansion, digital enhancement, commercial effectiveness, ESG and talent management. All Inflexion investments, whatever the size or shareholding, have full access to the teams supporting these strategies.
We are delighted that Freddy has joined the Inflexion team and know that the experience and network that she brings will add meaningful value to both Inflexion and our portfolio companies.
