Peter Freire named ILPA’s new CEO

Freire will replace Kathy Jeramaz-Larson, who’s stepping down at the end of this month

Peter Freire will become the new chief executive officer of the Institutional Limited Partners Association on June 8, the organisation's board of directors has announced.

Freire, who was the managing director of the World Economic Forum and served as advisor to private companies such as CultureHorde and Green Peak Partners, succeeds Kathy Jeramaz-Larson, ILPA's executive director of eight years. Before the World Economic Forum, Freire served as managing and executive director for 18 years at the Corporate Executive Board Company. There, Freire oversaw the company strategic business lines and its HR business portfolio, including the CEB Corporate Leadership Council.

“Peter brings a wealth of experience in building and managing successful global businesses and teams,” ILPA chairman Michael Mazzola said.
Friere has an undergraduate degree from the London School of Economics and an MBA from Harvard Business School.

Russell Reynolds Associates conducted the executive search for the appointment, which follows ILPA's annual conference in Pasadena, Calif., that took place this week.
