Elite appoints Lindsey Moorley as CFO post TPG acquisition

Elite announces today (25 September) that it has appointed Lindsey Moorley as chief financial officer, as it continues to assemble its executive leadership following its acquisition from Thomson Reuters by TPG.

Prior to joining the Elite team, Moorley, who is now based in New York, served as senior vice president, corporate FP&A, at global consumer intelligence company NielsenIQ, a $3.1bn Advent International portfolio company. We’re told that Moorley led corporate and global financial planning and analysis across the organisation, including supporting a $1bn merger with GFK, completed in June 2023.

“Lindsey’s insight and expertise will be a tremendous asset to Elite as we continue to build out our world-class team as a fully independent business, in order to accelerate our growth and evolution,” said Mark Dorman, CEO of Elite, who was appointed as CEO in June. “She brings to the table robust experience in building highly skilled international finance organizations through public and private equity ownership, driving strategic top-line growth within SaaS portfolios, and building robust operating processes from the ground up – all of which will prove valuable as we embark on this next phase for Elite.”

Thomson Reuters announced in April this year that European late stage private equity firm TPG has agreed to buy a majority stake in Elite at a valuation of $500m. That acquisition completed in June, since when there have been numerous announcements around new titles in the independent organisation. Elisabet Hardy is head of product (formerly VP of product management); Patrick Hurley is head of global support (formerly VP of global specialty support); Duncan Hannigan has reprised his role as sales director for EMEA; and Liz Quinn is global account director (previously 3E international sales manager).
