Blue Horizon announces today the appointment of Przemek Obloj as a Managing Partner in the Executive Team with responsibility for the Company’s growth capital and private equity business, expanding Blue Horizon’s investment universe beyond its successful seed and venture capital operations.
Obloj brings more than 15 years of investing experience from leading global organisations including CVC Capital Partners and EQT Partners. Prior to joining Blue Horizon, Przemek was the Managing Director and Head of European Private Equity at PSP Investments, a C$ 170 billion Canadian pension investment manager. He started his career at McKinsey & Company and holds an MSc in Finance from Warsaw School of Economics and an MBA from INSEAD in Fontainebleau and Singapore.
Björn Witte, CEO of Blue Horizon, said: “We are delighted to welcome Przemek to Blue Horizon in those exciting times for the sector. He brings extensive experience and an impressive investment track record in consumer, technology, and life sciences sectors and in building successful investment organisations. Having worked with him on both transactions and refining our organisation, I could not think of a better partner for the future. Under his leadership, Blue Horizon’s growth capital will complement our existing verticals, from seed stage and venture capital to the operational platforms such as the LIVEKINDLY Collective which we set-up in 2019 and continue to support as the controlling shareholder.”
