Conor Boden has joined private equity firm Advent International from 3i to take up the newly-created role of head of portfolio board development.
In his new role at the global p.e. firm, he will focus on extending Advent’s existing operating partner program. Based in London, Boden will also be responsible for setting up and managing a broader network of chairmen, non-executive directors and CEOs.
Prior to joining Advent, Conor spent nine years at 3i, where he was responsible for the development and management of a group of executive chairmen and industrialists for 3i’s European buyout business.
“Conor’s appointment is testament to the extremely high value we place on the contribution of our operating partners across all the territories in which we invest,” Humphrey Battcock, managing partner, said. “His appointment enables us to take both our operating partner and board-level resources to the next stage.”
