Private equity, infrastructure and debt management specialist 3i has appointed Credit Suisse vet Paul Su as senior partner.
3i says the appointment reinforces its commitment to the Chinese market.
Su spent 10 years with Credit Suisse, based in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing, most recently as managing director and vice-chairman of Greater China, investment banking department, where he was responsible for originating and executing transactions, as well as managing client relationships. Su has led many capital market, restructuring and M&A assignments for Chinese clients including China National Offshore Oil Corporation, Shanghai Electric Group and China Ming Yang Wind Power Group.
In his new role, which he assumes in September 2011, Su will be focused on investment origination and execution and will report into Bob Stefanowski, chairman 3i Asia and the Americas.
Said Stefanowski: “China will continue to be an important economy and offers exciting investment opportunities, particularly as its financial system gradually opens up to the world. We continue to build on our strong track record in China and are pleased to have an executive of Paul’s caliber join our team.”
3i has had a presence in China since 2001 and currently has offices in Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong.
