A responsible private equity, driving force of a sustainable economy

PARIS, June 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Claire Chabrier succeeds Dominique Gaillard as Chair of France Invest, the French private equity and venture capital investors body.

At the end of its General Meeting held today, Tuesday 15 June 2021, the new Board of Directors of France Invest unanimously elected Claire Chabrier as Chair of France Invest, for a two-year term.

Claire Chabrier has been active for 20 years in private equity, in leading financial institutions. She is currently Associate Director of Amundi Private Equity Funds (PEF), which she joined in 2011

Claire was Director and Vice-Chair of France Invest from mid-June 2018 to 15 June 2021. During these three years, she played an active part in particular in managing the COVID crisis in the sector, promoting private equity among business leaders, and diversity issues in asset management companies and the enterprises that they support.
