Partners Group has appointed 22 senior managers to a new and diverse global leadership team (the Global Executive Board), charged with driving forward the global business and corporate development of the firm.
Members include partners and managing directors from different business lines across the firm's offices in São Paulo, San Francisco, New York, London, Singapore and Sydney, as well as its headquarters in Zug, Switzerland.
The Global Executive Board will work closely with the Executive Committee, formerly known as the Executive Board, a smaller group of 12 senior management members who are also members of the Global Executive Board. The Executive Committee is responsible for Partners Group's day-to-day client and corporate activities and reports directly to the Board of Directors.
The above adjustments will be effective from 1 January 2015.
Christoph Rubeli, Co-CEO of Partners Group, states,
"As we have evolved into a truly global investment firm since our inception, so has the management of our organization become increasingly global both in terms of focus and participation. The new Global Executive Board is another important step on that evolutionary journey and mirrors the steps taken already within our global investment practice."
Peter Wuffli, Chairman of Partners Group's Board of Directors, adds,
"The formation of a Global Executive Board with senior representation from all business lines is a natural next step for our global and growing organization. It is crucial for all regions to have representation at the top level of management and the Global Executive Board ensures this."
