Bachmann, Stjernfeldt Join EVPE Board
EV Private Equity (EVPE) has appointed two new Advisory Board members, Bettina Bachmann and Carl Stjernfeldt, who bring decades of experience and venture capital knowledge to the firm.
Bachmann spent 35 years at Shell, latterly as Vice President of Subsurface & Wells Software and now sits on several boards in nonexecutive roles, while Stjernfeldt leads the Corporate Development Group in Americas for Shell New Energies. Bachmann has held a variety of business, technical and leadership roles in exploration and development, working in the Middle East, Africa and Europe, and has led senior leadership development programs and strategy across upstream R&D.
Stjernfeldt has served on a long list of boards at companies including Agito Networks (acquired by ShoreTel), Arbor Networks (acquired by Tektronix), BNI Video (acquired by Cisco), Broadbus Technologies (acquired by Motorola) and Cedar Point Communications (acquired by Genband).
Helge Tveit, EVPE Managing Partner said, “Bringing Carl and Bettina into our Advisory Board expands the knowledge and expertise that our portfolio companies are able to draw upon to support growth.
“I’m confident that their experience and networks will prove to be significant assets to EV and we’re particularly excited about Carl’s experience in clean energy, alongside Bettina’s background in digital and software, which strengthen two areas of high priority across the EVPE portfolio.”
The current board includes senior representatives from Aker BP, Petrobras, Apache and Ensco.
