Inflexion names three new investment partners

Inflexion Private Equity has appointed Irina Hemmers as a Partner. She will lead the TMT team, building on Inflexion’s long history of successful investments in the sector including On the Beach, FDM and Reward Gateway.

Hemmers started her career at McKinsey & Company before joining Apax Partners as a Partner in the media team where she spent 13 years responsible for digital investments globally. More recently, Irina was a Partner and Head of Principal Investing at Eight Roads, the proprietary investing arm of Fidelity International.
Inflexion has also promoted Malcolm Coffin and Josh Kaufman to Partner with immediate effect.
Coffin is based in Inflexion’s Manchester office where he primarily focuses on the industrial products and energy sectors. Since joining Inflexion in 2007, Malcolm has been involved in numerous transactions including the recent exit from UK Power Reserve and investments in Bollington Wilson Group and Calco. 
Kaufman primarily focuses on minority investing where his responsibilities include evaluating and executing transactions as well as originating new opportunities. He co-led investments in Radius Payment Solutions, K2 Partnering Solutions and Outdoor Plus.
Coffin and Kaufman and Josh are also responsible for leading Inflexion’s activity in the Benelux region where Inflexion recently invested in Calco.
Simon Turner, Managing Partner at Inflexion, says: “We are delighted to add three new Partners to our growing team. Irina’s significant experience will strengthen the depth of knowledge at Inflexion, while her expertise in the TMT sector will further enhance our capability in that area. I am also very pleased to announce the promotions of Malcolm and Josh to Partner. They have both proven themselves to be highly effective at sourcing, evaluating and completing investments and supporting businesses as they develop. Their promotions are thoroughly deserved and we are confident they will both continue to enjoy great success at Inflexion.”
