The general assembly of the European Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (EVCA) has elected Vincenzo Morelli, operating partner at TPG Capital, as its latest chairman.
Morelli replaces Karsten Langer, partner at Riverside, who has chaired the association for the last year.
"I would like to thank Karsten Langer, our much respected outgoing chairman, for his achievements over the past year during this crucial time for the EVCA to put its case for our industry to society at large,” Morelli said in a statement.
For the past three years since its inception, Morelli has been chairman of the European Private Equity Roundtable (EPER). He has also served as director and vice-chairman of EVCA since 2010.
Prior to joining TPG, Morelli was a partner at Alvarez and Marsal, a senior adviser with Clayton Dubilier and Rice, and chief executive of Konton Instruments (a company backed by BC Partners), among other positions. He started his career at the Boston Consulting Group, in Paris and Chicago.
Morelli holds an MBA from Stanford University and an MA in philosophy, politics and economics from Corpus Christi College, University of Oxford.
