GLP Capital Partners Europe (“GCP Europe”) announced today that it has appointed Ben Marks as Chief Financial Officer. Ben assumes the role with immediate effect taking over from Shane Kelly and will report to Nick Cook, President of GCP Europe.
Ben joined GLP in 2019 as Group Finance Director and has supported the business through a period of strong growth. Earlier this year, the business underwent a strategic reorganisation to create GCP, a stand-alone global fund management business with approximately $125 billion in total assets under management across 52 funds (as of 31 December 2022.) The European business has also seen AUM rise from €6.7bn and an operating portfolio of 2.7 million SQM as at 31 December 2019, to a total AUM of €15.4bn with an operating portfolio of 8.8 million SQM as at 31 March 2023.
Prior to joining GLP, Ben spent 15 years at The Berkeley Group where he held various senior finance roles. Ben is a Chartered Accountant (FCA) under the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England & Wales.
Nick Cook, President of GCP Europe, said: “Appointing Ben as our new CFO for Europe was an easy decision given Ben’s reputation and experience notably the last four years working within our business as Group Finance Director. His appointment provides us with a seamless transition, which is thanks in a large part to smart succession planning and careful talent development within the business. Where possible we always prefer to grow and promote from within and this was a great example of that, which in turn will inevitably create more opportunities for other colleagues to expand and develop their careers within GCP.”
