The European Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (EVCA) has elected Anne Glover, Chief Executive and Co-founder of Amadeus Capital Partners (Amadeus), to serve as its Chairman for the year to June 2015. Today she succeeds the 2013-2014 Chairman, George Anson of HarbourVest Partners, who will become EVCA´s immediate Past-Chairman.
“In the last 12 months the EVCA has continued to build on its strong foundation of proactive communications, notably through the update of the Professional Standards handbook, as well as expand its education programme” said George Anson, outgoing EVCA Chairman. “I am confident that, under Anne´s leadership, the EVCA will continue this momentum and bring additional value to its members.”
“It is with great pleasure that I take over the role of Chairman of the EVCA, particularly during these changing times following the European Parliament elections last month and the upcoming appointment of a new European Commission in November.” said Anne Glover, Chairman of the EVCA. “This provides the EVCA with a unique opportunity to position the industry as an important contributor to the European growth agenda. I would like to thank George Anson for his dedication and clear leadership over the past 12 months.
The EVCA unites all sectors of the private equity industry, providing a strong platform for the delivery of robust data. In its efforts to remain the most authoritative source on private equity fundraising and investment activity across Europe, the EVCA is leading the creation of a pan-European database of private equity activity. I look forward to building on this initiative to promote the value and importance of dynamic research in illustrating private equity´s contribution to long term financing of the economy and a stable source of high returns for pension funds, insurance companies, family offices and endowments.”
Dörte Höppner, the EVCA’s Chief Executive, added “George’s successor Anne Glover is an experienced and respected venture capitalist. While the EVCA has certainly grown over the years to encompass investors and other market segments of the industry, we are always conscious and proud of our origins. Supporting European venture capital remains one of the EVCA’s top priorities and we all look forward to benefitting from Anne’s experience.”
