Apax Names Sillitoe, Truwit Co-CEOs

Dec 5 2013 | 11:35am ET

Private-equity giant Apax Partners will replace CEO Martin Halusa with two of its partners.

Andrew Sillitoe and Mitch Truwit will take over as co-CEOs in January, when Halusa, Apax's second CEO after founder Ronald Cohen, will become the London-based firm's chairman.

"Apax's partnership model and consensus-driven approach have served the firm and all of its stakeholders extremely well over the past three decades, and I believe Andrew and Mitch are well-qualified and experienced to lead and inspire the next generation of Apax."

Sillitoe currently works on Apax's technology and telecommunications team. Truwit, the former CEO of Orbitz Worldwide and a former chief operating officer at priceline.com, is a partner at the firm's Apax Services division.

Halusa has led Apax since 2003, and will retire at the end of the investment period for the new US$7.5 billion fund Apax raised earlier this year.
