International Public Partnership appoints Mike Gerrard to its Board as Independent Director

– GUERNSEY, St. Peter Port – International Public Partnerships (LSE:INPP), the listed infrastructure investment company, today announced the appointment of Michael Gerrard as an independent non-executive director. It is anticipated that Mr. Gerrard will become Chairman following Mr. Rupert Dorey’s planned retirement from the Board of Directors on 31 December 2018.

Mr. Rupert Dorey, Chairman of International Public Partnerships, said: “Mike is a highly experienced and respected figure within the infrastructure industry. He has worked on some of the most significant infrastructure projects and programmes delivered in the UK and globally over the last thirty years. These include the introduction of private finance into the UK’s energy, social infrastructure, environmental and transport sectors. Much of his work has been at the boundary between the private and public sectors, where value is created for both investors and the users of infrastructure assets. We welcome Mike to the Board and as my successor as Chairman at the end of the year.”

The Company has an impressive track record in the origination and stewardship of high-quality infrastructure investments.

I look forward to helping the business continue to thrive.”
