ILPA names Peter Freire as CEO

Peter Freire is to assume the role of Chief Executive Officer of the Institutional Limited Partners Association (ILPA) on 8 June.

Freire succeeds Kathy Jeramaz-Larson who has served as Executive Director for the past eight years and will be stepping down at the end of the month.
Freire joins ILPA following a successful 18-year career at CEB, formerly the Corporate Executive Board, and more recently with the World Economic Forum and as an advisor and consultant to private companies. At CEB, he managed a number of its strategic businesses lines, and was responsible for CEB’s global portfolio of HR businesses, principally the Corporate Leadership Council. He was also responsible for CEB’s businesses in a number of regions outside of North America, including Asia-Pacific.
“Peter brings a wealth of experience in building and managing successful global businesses and teams,” says Michael J Mazzola, Managing Director with MetLife Investments and ILPA Chairman.  "He has proven expertise in areas clearly identified as essential for the continued growth of the ILPA."
At the annual ILPA conference in Pasadena, California this week, members and the Board of Directors had an opportunity to share their appreciation for the significant contributions Jeramaz-Larson made to the organisation and the industry.
“Kathy leaves a tremendous legacy at ILPA having grown the organisation from a small group of limited partners to a leading global private equity association with more than 318 members,” says Mazzola.  “Under her leadership, the ILPA has emerged as an influential organisation guiding industry best practices, education and training, research and benchmarking.”
