Campden Wealth Appoints Mindy Rosenthal President Of U.S. Subsidiary The Institute For Private Investors And David Berger CEO For The Americas

Campden Wealth, a leading provider of education, research and networking opportunities to ultra-high net worth families worldwide, has announced two strategic executive appointments in the U.S. Mindy Rosenthal has been promoted to president from executive director of the Institute for Private Investors (IPI), Campden Wealth's U.S. subsidiary, a membership organization of ultra-affluent private investors and families. David Berger has joined Campden Wealth as CEO for the Americas.

Rosenthal, who has served as IPI executive director since Campden Wealth's acquisition of the organization in 2011, will enhance her focus on overseeing services and content for IPI member families. Berger will be responsible for strategic planning and business development, operations and new technology initiatives in North and South America for UK-based Campden Wealth. Both executives, based in New York, will report to Dominic Samuelson, CEO, Campden Wealth.

"These appointments mark the next chapter in Campden Wealth's growth. With Mindy continuing and expanding her leadership of IPI, and David coming on board, we see exciting opportunities for our business in the U.S., and overall in North and South America," Samuelson said. "Campden is committed to serving the global wealth community of family businesses and family offices. We remain focused on building the preeminent membership network of significant wealth owners, and delivering a vibrant and engaging next generation program."

Rosenthal is a specialist in the wealth management needs of ultra-high net worth individuals and families with a focus on alternative investments and holistic family office services. She joined Campden Wealth as a managing director in 2007. Previously, she was the conference editorial director at MARHedge and an executive editor at Institutional Investor.

"I am so pleased to be able to devote my efforts exclusively to our IPI families in this broadened leadership role, and to welcome David. His focus on macro strategy and business development initiatives will complement nicely my concentration on our member families," Rosenthal said. "We will continue to deliver best in class service, product innovation and real value to our members and community through information, education and facilitating families sharing intelligence with each other."

Berger joins Campden Wealth from Asia Executive Solutions, a Hong Kong-based consultancy he founded that advised professional and financial services clients entering Asian markets. Previously, he served as the head of participant services for Asia Pacific at the Frontier Strategy Group, a CEO-only network focused on sharing best business practices regionally and globally. Berger, who holds a Juris Doctor degree from New York University School of Law, began his career at the law firm of O'Melveny & Myers LLP in Washington, DC.

"I am very excited to be working with Dominic, Mindy and the entire team at Campden Wealth and IPI," Berger said. "Campden Wealth is the leading global organization serving ultra-affluent families and their family offices, founded on exceptional service and product presentation delivered by outstanding people. I look forward to spearheading our growth and expansion in North and South America."
