Former KPMG managing partner Georges Bock has been appointed partner of investment company Ilavska Vuillermoz Capital, joining founding partners Laurent Hengesch and Alain Wildanger. 

Bock left the company’s advisory board to take on his new role in which he “will be involved in the management and development of all our future investment activities,” Ilavska Vuillermoz Capital said in a statement.

The former KPMG managing partner is also the founder and CEO of fintech InvesTRe, an investment and trading platform, and a board member of regulatory technology start-up Governance.com.

Ilavska Vuillermoz Capital welcomed Uwe Kolb to its advisory board. The investor, non-executive board member and independent advisor fills Bock’s vacated seat. The company also recruited Irene Prota as investment analyst.

The investment company’s portfolio includes firms active in financial services, insurance, IT, defence, construction and hospitality. “Our goal is to create value by investing in great businesses where our strategic insight, capital, relationships and operational support can drive the transformation that unlocks the company’s potential,” the company says on its website.
