Raj Rao: GIP's
Previously reported on InfrastructureInvestor.com, Susan Healy has now been officially confirmed as the fund’s new head of global fundraising and investor relations. Healy was a senior member of Babcock & Brown’s Capital Markets Group and was also head of Carlyle’s investor relations department for 13 years.
In a statement, GIP highlighted her experience in fundraising and fund formation, as the firm prepares to raise a second infrastructure fund. Speaking with Infrastructure Investor last year, Joe Blum, the firm’s general counsel said the firm was preparing to launch its second infrastructure fund in 2010.
The other senior addition to GIP is Gary Pritchard, formerly head of SABIC Innovative Plastics’ supply chain, where he managed over 5,000 employees. He has over 30 years of technical and managerial experience, including 26 years of experience at General Electric.
