Inflexion strengthens value acceleration capabilities
Inflexion is pleased to announce it has made a number of appointments to its value acceleration team during the first half of 2022.
Inflexion has identified a core set of strategies that make a material difference to delivering sustainable growth and creating long-term value. The firm has invested into these capabilities with clearly defined ‘value acceleration levers’ and a dedicated team, which is available to all Inflexion investments, whatever the size or shareholding. These include M&A, international expansion, digital enhancement, commercial effectiveness, ESG and talent management.
To help the portfolio explore and implement these strategies, Inflexion has built a well-resourced and experienced in-house value acceleration team supplemented by a wide network of industry experts. These individuals work alongside the investment team to drive growth across the portfolio.
Recent appointments include:
Mike Arshinskiy joined in February as Technology Director. His appointment follows 15 years at Deloitte where he was Partner and Co-Founder of its Digital Practice in Austria, focusing on cloud engineering and software development across German-speaking markets. Working closely with Inflexion’s Digital Director Alex Mathers, Mike focuses on software engineering, cloud and cyber security with portfolio management.
Jennie Galbraith joined in the new role of ESG Director in February. She brings over 20 years of experience in driving sustainability, including serving as Group Head of ESG at BAT. Jennie is a trailblazer in the ESG field, having received a ‘Game Changer’ award from HRH Prince Charles and a founding force of the Institute for Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability, where she serves as Chair of the Board.
Jonathan Battye joined in April as Assistant Director to focus on commercial strategy alongside Inflexion Director Maria Orlowski. He brings with him over a decade of relevant experience focussed on pricing, sales and marketing topics, most recently at Oliver Wyman and prior to that at the AA, where he ran the pricing and retention team.
Our flexible funding is only part of the support we give; the most powerful aspect of our partnerships is the value we create. We are committed to continuing to invest in people and resources to accelerate the growth of the companies we back.
