Thierry Baudon To Continue As Invest Europe Chair

Thierry Baudon, 2019-2020 Chair of Invest Europe, is to continue as Chair, following the sudden and unexpected death of Roderick “Rory” Macmillan (Chair-elect for 2020-2021) last month.

Invest Europe, the association representing Europe’s private equity, venture capital and infrastructure sectors, as well as their investors, last month learned of the sad passing of Rory, Managing Director, Global Government Affairs, The Carlyle Group. As Vice-Chair of the Large Private Equity Platform (EPER), and a long-term supporter of Invest Europe, Macmillan was due to succeed Baudon, former Managing Partner of Mid Europa Partners, in June at the association’s Ordinary General Meeting. Our thoughts remain with Rory’s family and his husband Koen Kleyn.

Thierry Baudon commented: “Rory was vigorous supporter of invest Europe and a strong voice for the private equity industry. He was passionate about many issues, including ESG and gender, diversity and inclusion. We will honour his memory and contribution by striving to show the private equity industry’s leadership on these matters, as well as many others.”

As Chair, Baudon will continue to be supported by Invest Europe’s board of directors. Anne Fossemalle of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, currently Vice-Chair representing the LP Platform, has been appointed Chair-elect for 2021-2022. Meanwhile, Max Römer, Quadriga Capital, has also agreed to remain as Treasurer for another year.
