Earlier this year, the Institutional Limited Partners Association (ILPA) announced its intention to open an office in London by the end of 2023; plans are well underway to make that a reality.
Greg Durst, ILPA’s Senior Managing Director of Global Growth, has been tapped to serve as the Interim Head of ILPA Europe. Durst previously served as ILPA’s Managing Director of Corporate Development and has broad experience in private equity as a GP, and as a service provider and financier to leading players in the industry across the globe.
In addition to setting up operations on the ground in London and working to deepen connections with LPs, service providers and other industry bodies across the region, Durst will spearhead the search for a permanent Head of Europe.
The Head of Europe will build out ILPA’s on-the ground presence in Europe through establishing a base of operations in London and steering and supporting the organization’s engagement strategy in the region with members and other stakeholders. This work is supported by an ILPA European Advisory Council, made up of ILPA members from the region.
If you are London-based, will be in the area or are planning to attend industry events in the region, please let Greg or Holly know. ILPA be at IPEM Paris 2023, the With Intelligence Women in Private Equity Summit Europe, IPE Iceland and the BVCA Summit in the weeks ahead speaking and hosting two LP-only breakfasts, in addition to several ILPA Institute Courses.
