Gerrard set for INPP chair

Infrastructure investor International Public Partnerships (INPP) has announced that industry expert Michael Gerrard is set to become its new chairman.

Gerrard has been appointed an independent non-executive director and the company anticipates that the former Partnerships UK chief will take over as chairman following Rupert Dorey’s planned retirement from the board on 31 December.

Gerrard has over 30 years of experience in the infrastructure market, including his time as deputy and then chief executive of Partnerships UK and more recently he led the Thames Tideway Tunnel procurement for Thames Water Utilities as a managing director.

"Mike is a highly experienced and respected figure within the infrastructure industry,” said Dorey. “Much of his work has been at the boundary between the private and public sectors, where value is created for both investors and the users of infrastructure assets.”

"I am delighted to be joining the board of INPP,” added Gerrard. “The company's ethos aligns closely with my own experience and approach to working in partnership with the investors, governments and communities which we serve.”
