CEPRES appoints Karl-Heinz Floether and Iain Stokes to Advisory Board

CEPRES has appointed Karl-Heinz Floether (pictured, ex-International Chairman Accenture) and Iain Stokes (ex-Head of EMEA Private Equity State Street Bank) to the Company's Advisory Board.

Both are respected thought-leaders in the future of FinTech and will help set strategy to continue CEPRES’ rapid growth in North America, Europe and Asia. Floether was previously Chief Executive Financial Services and Group Chief Executive Technology & Delivery at Accenture, and is member of Supervisory Boards for Deutsche Boerse AG and Commerzbank AG. Stokes was previously Group Managing Director at Mourant and Senior Manager Private Equity at Barings and holds non-Executive Directorships with prominent finance firms.
“Mr Floether’s and Mr Stokes deep experience as industry leaders in finance and technology are complementary to each other and the CEPRES management team,” says Dr Daniel Schmidt, Managing Partner and Chief Executive Officer, CEPRES. “We will benefit from their experience as former heads of global corporations to help us grow as an international FinTech company.”
“I am very excited to be working with the CEPRES team,” says Floether. “CEPRES is bringing investment intelligence and connectivity direct to the desks of institutional investors in all regions of the world. Combining big data analytics and a confidential investment network will revolutionise and expand private equity markets the way Fintech did for financial markets in the 1990’s.”
Stokes adds: “CEPRES is the logical step for the private equity industry to mature. Achieving transparency with confidentiality and providing certainty of outcomes are serious limitations for institutional investors. CEPRES pulls back the curtain to help both GPs and LPs grow and benefit from this expanding financial market. I am very pleased to help shape the future with CEPRES”
