3rd November, 2022 – Colmore, the leading service and technology provider for private market Limited Partners (LPs) and allocators, announced a significant expansion to its senior leadership team, including a new APAC Head of Sales and Head of Marketing.
These additions to Colmore’s leadership will extend capabilities on all fronts, including our products, people and operations, and we are moving quickly to structure our organization for faster growth to ensure we can respond to the changing needs of our clients, systems and associates around the world.
April Wu joins Colmore as APAC Head of Sales following 12 years of experience in the alternative investment technology industry across Private Equity, Real Estate, Private Debt & Hedge Funds. APAC private markets have been growing exponentially in the last few years. The region is becoming an increasingly important one for both investors and investment managers and April will lead the way in our APAC development from our Singapore office.
April shares, “I am honoured and proud to join Colmore to lead our expansion in APAC. I truly believe Colmore has been the missing piece in the allocators’ space. Having been serving the private markets in the last few years, I am inspired by the expertise Colmore brings to the region and firmly see the opportunities where we can value-add our clients’ investment workflows. Technology alone is not sufficient. Repetitive processes are not sustainable. Hence, Colmore’s founding principles and dedication to quality first have been refreshing. I am excited for our APAC LPs/allocators to get to know Colmore and our best-in-class allocator solutions.”
Louise Catherall joins Colmore as Head of Marketing following over 12 years of marketing experience and will play a pivotal role in forming new connections between market development, product and sales operations, and customer retention in Colmore’s ongoing plans for rapid expansion.
Louise shares: “I am thrilled to join Colmore at this stage of growth. Every interaction I’ve had with the team has been positive and inspiring, and I’m motivated by the fact that Colmore is positioned for a high degree of meaningful impact on a global scale. There’s still so much to do, and I’m looking forward to contributing and driving greater outcomes for Colmore.”
