Johannes Huth joins PEF board

Johannes Huth, head of the European operations of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts, has been appointed to the board of the Private Equity Foundation. 

Huth (pictured) will join PEF’s existing trustees in taking responsibility for driving the work and development of the venture philanthropy fund. 

The industry initiative donates financial contributions and pro bono business expertise to youth and children’s charities to enable them to scale up to help more disadvantaged young people.

Huth says: “I am truly grateful to the foundation for giving me this unique opportunity. Empowering young people to reach their full potential is something that I feel passionate about and I look forward to supporting the foundation, together with my fellow board members, in any way I can.”

Shaks Ghosh, chief executive of the Private Equity Foundation, adds: “We are enormously fortunate to benefit from trustees with such exceptional business experience as Johannes and I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome him to the Private Equity Foundation. With our board’s guidance we are helping to grow cutting edge charities with life-transforming interventions. The industry’s expertise and, perhaps most importantly, its will and commitment, are facilitating the improvement of tens of thousands of young lives.”
