3i Infrastructure plc (“3i Infrastructure” or “the Company”) notes the announcement by its Investment Adviser, 3i Investments plc, a wholly-owned subsidiary of 3i Group plc (“3i Group” or “3i”), of changes it has made to the leadership of its Infrastructure business.
3i Group has announced this morning that Cressida Hogg, Managing Partner, will be leaving 3i at the end of March to pursue a senior role outside of the Group. Phil White and Ben Loomes will be appointed Co-Managing Partners of the Infrastructure business and Neil King will become Senior Partner.

3i Infrastructure’s Board is fully supportive of these new arrangements. The new leadership team, which includes long-standing members of the team, will provide continuity in strategy and execution for the Company.
Peter Sedgwick, Chairman, 3i Infrastructure plc, said: “The Board has worked closely with Phil White and Neil King since 2007, and has built a strong relationship with them. They have been key to the Company’s strong performance since its IPO in 2007. Ben Loomes has been a member of the 3i Infrastructure Board for the past seven months and in this period has already made a valuable contribution. We are confident that they will provide new impetus and insight in their new roles. We would also like to thank Cressida Hogg for her significant contribution to the Company.”
