PAI Partners expands senior operations team

24 Jun 2020

PAI Partners, a leading European private equity firm, announces the appointment of Marc Boullier as Managing Director, as the firm continues to reinforce its senior operations team, the PAI Performance Group (PPG).

Marc will lead IT and digital transformation across PAI and its portfolio companies. He brings over 25 years of experience as an IT and digital expert, having recently served as Chief Operating Officer at Mobility Work (GMAO) and, prior to that, as Chief Information Officer at Carambar & Co. Marc has also held senior positions at Vistali, Wavestone, Accenture and AlixPartners.

Marc’s appointment follows a number of senior hires over the last year to bolster the PPG, which oversees operational transformation programmes across the firm’s portfolio and supports due diligence. Christian Atherton, a specialist in top line growth, joined PAI in January 2020 from Simon-Kucher & Partners whilst Séverine de Wulf, an expert on talent, leadership and governance, was appointed in September 2019 from Spencer Stuart. They joined Franck Temam and Cornelia Gomez, long-standing members of the PPG who focus on supply chain and ESG & sustainability, respectively.

Laurent Rivoire, a Managing Partner at PAI Partners, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Marc to PAI as we continue to strengthen the breadth and depth of functional expertise of the PAI Performance Group. Operational improvement of our portfolio companies is at the core of value creation, and the PAI Performance Group, hand in hand with our investment professionals and management teams, is instrumental in delivering such transformation.”
