Tenzing completes its board

London, 11th August 2016 – Tenzing is delighted to announce that Ian Armitage has joined the team at Tenzing as a Non-Executive Director, completing the Board.

Guy Gillon, Managing Partner of Tenzing commented: “We have known and admired Ian for many years and we feel phenomenally privileged that we will be working with him. Ian’s leadership and investment track records speak for themselves but it’s his people skills and high energy engagement that makes working with him inspiring and fun for the team”.

Ian Armitage, Non-Executive Director of Tenzing, commented: “Ever since meeting the team at Tenzing, I have found their energy and ambition infectious. I share their vision of building the next-generation private equity firm and I like their grounded nature, sense of urgency and fear of complacency. I’m delighted to join and support the team on their exciting journey.”

The post Brexit buyout of the high growth and market-leading FMP Global and the completion of Tenzing’s Board underlines Tenzing’s commitment to both investing in high growth lower mid-market companies and providing them with all the tools and support to realise their ambitions.
