QuantumWave Capital Appoints Michael Howell to its Board of Directors, Expands Team

PARIS — OCTOBER 23, 2012 — QuantumWave Capital, the leader in mobile internet investment banking, is pleased to announce the appointment of Michael Howell to its board of directors.

“Michael is a corporate finance expert and strategic investor with an exceptional record of achieving successful exits via IPO, trade sale, or private equity investment”, said Robert Marcus, Chairman and CEO of QuantumWave Capital. “We are delighted and honored to have him join the board.”

“QuantumWave is at the forefront of the mobile internet revolution, strongly positioned to emerge as a key player in the technology industry’s sharp pivot to mobile,” said Howell. “I’m delighted to join the team, to help guide the next phase of the firm’s growth and expansion.”

Michael currently serves as a Managing Partner with Caymus Equity Partners, a private equity firm with offices in New York and Atlanta, and previously held CEO positions at two private equity owned companies, as well as Chairman or Director on a number of public, private and not-for-profit boards.

The firm is also pleased to announce the appointment of Simon Wood as Head of Technology, responsible for client origination activity worldwide. Simon is a technology expert specialized in mobile internet software systems. He served previously as Chief Technology Officer and directed R&D at a number of public and private mobile internet software companies, and holds multiple patents in the field of mobile internet software systems design.

These appointments come at a time of important expansion and opportunity for the firm, as the rate and pace of mobile internet innovation accelerates, and large organizations, under pressure to reposition their technology assets to address the market opportunity yet unable to innovate fast enough in-house, embrace technology and talent acquisitions as a strategic imperative.
