Faulds to chair Ipes

Ipes Group, a provider of outsourced services to the private equity industry in Europe, has named Jim Faulds as chairman.

Faulds spent his executive career in advertising, founding Faulds Advertising, and growing it to become Scotland’s largest advertising agency in 2002, when he exited from the business. Since then, he has served as chairman and non-executive director on the boards of a number of listed and private equity backed companies including Wood Mackenzie and Giles Insurance Brokers. He currently chairs Change Recruitment and Jumpstart.

He succeeds Pernille Fabricius, who is stepping down from the Ipes group board to focus on her new role as chief financial officer of Getinge Group, the global Swedish medical technology business.
