The Board of Directors (the "Board") of EPE Special Opportunities Limited ("ESO" or the "Company") are pleased to announce the appointment of David Pirouet as non-executive Director and head of the Audit and Risk Committee with immediate effect.
Mr Pirouet joined PricewaterhouseCoopers Channel Islands LLP ("PwC CI LLP") in 1980, retiring in 2009 after being an Audit and Assurance Partner for over 20 years. During his 29 years at the firm David specialised in the financial services sector, in particular in the alternative investment management area and also led the PwC CI LLP Hedge Fund and business recovery practices for over four years.
Mr Pirouet currently holds a number of non-executive positions across private equity, infrastructure and corporate debt. David's appointments currently include non-executive Director and Chair of the Audit and Risk committee for GCP Infrastructure Investments (a FTSE 250 listed company), non-executive Director for the General Partners of ICG Europe Funds V and VI and non-executive Director of the Manager/General Partners of Kreos Capital Funds IV, V and VI. David is registered with the Jersey Financial Services Commission.
The Directors are pleased to welcome David to the Board and are confident his experience in audit, private equity and wider financial services will be a valuable addition to the Company.
