HICL Infrastructure announces Simon Holden to its Board as upcoming Non-Executive Director

– GUERNSEY, St. Peter Port – HICL Infrastructure Company Limited (LSE:HICL), the listed infrastructure investment company advised by InfraRed Capital Partners Limited, is pleased to announce the appointment of Simon Holden as a non-executive director with effect from 1 July 2016. This appointment has been made following a comprehensive search carried out by a third party recruitment consultant.

Mr Holden is a Guernsey resident and has more than 15 years of experience in private equity investment and portfolio company operations roles. Working initially with Candover Investments and latterly Terra Firma Capital Partners since 2008, he has completed a number of successful buy-outs and held a number of Board-level operational roles alongside the executive teams of portfolio companies. Mr Holden left Terra Firma in late 2015 to take up a limited number of independent directorships of alternative investment funds, and fiduciary and trading company clients.

He graduated from the University of Cambridge with an MEng and MA in Manufacturing Engineering, holds the IMC and is a member of the States of Guernsey’s GIFA, NED Forum and IP Commercial Group. Mr Holden has no other listed company directorships.

Mr Holden’s appointment follows the announcement of the resignation of Mr Graham Picken and Mr John Hallam from the Board of the Company with effect from 30 June 2016.

Ian Russell, Chairman of the Company, said: “I am delighted to welcome Simon to the Board. He has extensive experience relevant to the HICL Group’s activities which is complementary to the skillsets of the existing Directors, thereby strengthening the Board overall.

Simon will be subject to election at the Company’s forthcoming AGM in July, at the same time as the other five directors are put forward for re-election.”
