New York – September 24, 2013 – Ipreo, a leading global provider of market intelligence and productivity software to both capital markets and corporate investor relations professionals, announced that it has hired Charlie Young as Managing Director, Global Business Development and Strategy.
Young joins Ipreo from KKR. At KKR, he worked with the firm’s portfolio companies to drive M&A activity and top-line growth. Prior to KKR, Young was a consultant with McKinsey & Company. He is a graduate of Harvard University.
Since KKR’s acquisition of Ipreo in 2011, Young has worked as an in-house consultant to Ipreo. Focused on the company’s M&A activities and organic growth strategies, Young effectively fulfilled the duties of his new role prior to joining in a full-time capacity.

“Ipreo has seen tremendous growth since its inception – both organic and through acquisition. It makes sense to have a management-level role dedicated to exploring and driving our various M&A, partnership, and new business opportunities,” said Brian Dockray, Ipreo’s CFO. “We’re thrilled that someone of Charlie’s calibre, with a deep understanding of our global business, has chosen to join us.”
