The PRI is delighted to announce the appointment of four new signatory representatives to the Private Equity Advisory Committee:

  • James Holley, Head of ESG at Bridgepoint
  • Tammy Bodnar, Senior Associate, Sustainable Investing at CPPIB
  • Michael Cappucci, Senior Vice President – Sustainable Investing at Harvard Management Company
  • Joanne Saleeba, Investments Manager ESG at HESTA

The PRI is also delighted to announce that chairmanship of the committee will be assumed by Anders Strömblad, Head of External Management at AP2, in 2018.

The committee advises the PRI on the strategy and execution of the private equity programme. The quality of the applications and the appointments are a reflection of the standing of the committee and its work within the private equity sector. For a full list of members and more information about the committee’s duties, see here.

The new members are effective from the start of 2018, and replace three highly-valued signatory organisations that are stepping down. The PRI would like to thank Jesus Arguelles and Sarah Takaki of Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan (Co-Chairs of the Committee in 2017), Matthieu Baret of Idinvest Partners, and John Beil of University of California for the time and expertise that they dedicated to their roles on the committee.
