Genesis Private Equity Limited ‘GPE’ confirms the appointment of Paul Davis to the board of Hawkes Bay based Ask Holdings Ltd ‘ASK’.

ASK is an innovative management services business which provides a cloud-based “Continuous Improvement System” that managers use to receive anonymous feedback, ideas and inspirations from their staff members, on the 13 key areas that drive business success.

Whilst also a director of GPE, Mr. Davis’ appointment is not a result of Genesis Private Equity No.1 Fund LP’s historical investment in the Company, but rather an appointment that is separate from this relationship.

Mr Davis’ extensive background in technology businesses, the funds management industry and his direct contacts to “Silicon Valley” were what led to the offer being made by ASK.

Paul joins GPE’s board appointee Kieran O’Hagan on the ASK Board (together with Chairman Andrew Bayly and independent director Michael Whittaker) from September onwards.
