Amadeus promotes three

The technology investor has hired a new partner and promoted two to investment manager.

Amadeus Capital Partners, a UK-based technology investor with £460 million (€479 million; $667 million) under management, has promoted Jeppe Zink to partner level.

Zink has been with the firm since 2003, having previously spent four years with Deutsche Morgan Grenfell and DB Venture Partners. At Amadeus he has co-led the firm’s investments into Stockholm-based software firm EpiServer and Danish software company Agillic among others.

In related news, Amadeus has promoted Bill Earner and Pat Burtis. Both are now investment managers.

“All technology companies, even those with great product and prospects, will find the going tough through 2009,” said co-founder and chief executive of Amadeus, Anne Glover, in a statement. “Careful husbandry of resources, good customer relationships and supportive long-term investors will be essential components for survival.”

Amadeus was founded in 1997 by Anne Glover, Peter Wynn and Hermann Hauser. The firm is currently investing its third fund, which closed on £162 million in 2007.
