Primrose Bell has stepped down after six wonderful years as Switchback’s Chair of Trustees. We would like to thank Primrose for all the hard work that she has put in over the years. Her experience, knowledge, belief and commitment to Switchback has been truly inspiring. Luckily for Switchback, Primrose isn’t going anywhere; she will be staying and continuing her role as a Trustee. Thank you Primrose!
We are really delighted that long standing Trustee Katie Beck will be taking over the reins from Primrose. Katie studied at the London School of Economics and went on to join the corporate finance department of Lazard, focusing on mergers and acquisitions. She then spent three years in the private equity team at Doughty Hanson & Co and was involved with a number of transactions across Europe. She then joined Darwin Private Equity, a UK based firm focusing on lower mid-market buyouts, as an Investment Director.
Everyone at Switchback is excited that Katie is the new Chair of Trustees and we all look forward to further successes under her stewardship.
