PARIS, July 20, 2021 - Quilvest Capital Partners, the leading multi-strategy alternatives division of Quilvest Group, has today announced the appointment of Christophe Evain as an Independent Director on the Quilvest Capital Partners’ Board. Mr Evain took up his seat at the board’s last meeting on 28 June 2021.

Mr Evain is a highly experienced and successful investment professional, having held a number of leading positions in top European financial institutions during a career that spans more than three decades. During his twenty-year tenure at Intermediate Capital Group, he served as Group Managing Director, in London, was responsible for international operations and business development, and sat on the company’s Executive Committee and Investment Committee. Following this, he assumed the dual role of CEO and CIO for seven years.

As an active non-executive, Mr Evain continues to advise some of Europe’s top companies, most recently acting as Non-Executive at Land Securities Plc and as Chairman of Bridges Fund Management. Christophe is also an Executive Fellow at London Business School.

The Quilvest Capital Partners Board is made up of five family members and two independent directors. It consists of Adrien de Boisanger, Craig Donaldson, Robin Filmer-Wilson, Alexis Meffre, Ana Sainz de Vicuña and Gonzalo Tanoira. Mr Evain will join Mr Donaldson as the second independent and non—family member on the Board.

Mr Donaldson was appointed to the Board in 2018 and subsequently as chairman of its Compensation Committee. He has over 30 years of alternative investment management experience and was a founding partner of Hg Capital, where he was a member of the Executive Committee and responsible for the firm’s client functions, co-investment activities, and business planning and strategy work (he retired from Hg in 2017). His earlier career included executive roles at Clarion Partners, UBS and PGIM. Donaldson maintains a number of non-executive roles including board, strategic advisory, and mentoring positions.

"I am delighted to announce Christophe’s appointment as an Independent Director to the Quilvest Capital Partners Board. In addition, he will be nominated President of the Audit Committee and member of the Compensation Committee. Through his highly successful career operating at the top level of some of Europe’s most prestigious investment organisations, Christophe brings a wealth of market expertise and experience, alongside a strong leadership and advisory track record. I am confident that his advice will prove invaluable as we continue to focus on our successful growth journey and commitment to providing best-in-class service to our investors."
