Esben Bay Jørgensen and Jesper Wadum Nielsen leave BWB Partners
22. September 2020
After more than 15 years in private equity, Esben Bay Jørgensen and Jesper Wadum Nielsen have decided to leave BWB Partners in order to pursue other interests, separately. The decision is based on careful considerations regarding the future, including a desire to commit more energy to projects outside BWB.
In 2004/2005 Esben and Jesper founded Odin Equity Partners together with Bernd Petersen. In 2015, Odin Equity Partners became BWB Partners and the partner group was extended to include Jacob Bergenholtz and Lars Thorsgaard Jensen in addition to Esben and Jesper. Both Esben and Jesper have held leading roles in a number of portfolio companies over the years and Esben will continue as board member in the Qubiqa Group while Jesper will continue as board member in the Transmedica Group.
In connection with the resignations of Esben and Jesper from BWB, Peter Johansen is promoted to Partner following which Jacob, Lars and Peter constitute the partner group.
The succession has been approved by BWB’s investors who have also given the partner group time to continue the value creation agenda across the portfolio.
