Silverfleet Capital, the European private equity firm, has today announced the appointment of Annette Wilson as Head of Investor Relations, based in its London office.

Mrs Wilson was previously a Managing Director at Palamon Capital Partners where she was latterly responsible for Investor Relations and Marketing, having initially joined as its Chief Financial Officer when the firm was founded in 1999. Prior to that Mrs Wilson worked in the insurance industry and held management roles at Sedgwick Group plc (now part of Marsh & McLennan Inc). She started her career at PricewaterhouseCoopers and qualified as a Chartered Accountant, having graduated from the University of Johannesburg with a BCom (Honours) degree.

Neil MacDougall, Managing Partner at Silverfleet Capital, commented: “Investor relations in a private equity firm has become increasingly important and we believe it is now time for Silverfleet Capital to create a dedicated investor relations function. We are not alone in recognising this trend and there are relatively few experienced individuals available in this field. We are therefore very pleased that Annette has decided to join us. We have had a very active year in 2013 and expect this to continue in 2014 so we have plenty to keep our investors updated on.”

Commenting on her appointment, Annette Wilson said: “I am excited to be joining Silverfleet Capital as they are a very established player in the European mid-market with a long and proven track record of creating value through their “buy to build” investment strategy. I look forward to contributing to the further development of the Firm through the establishment of a dedicated investor relations function which builds on the high standards Silverfleet Capital has already achieved in this area.”

Silverfleet Capital has agreed three new transactions during 2013, the most recent of which, Competence Call Center Holding GmbH, an outsourced customer contact service provider, was announced on 2 December.
