Cyrille Arnould: A pleasure to reconnect with Nori and his wife Noriko in London in February. The Kobayashi have now settled down in London where Nori leads a NEC affiliate. As for “moi”, still running a fund investing in the development of renewable energy power plants in emerging markets. I am based in Luxembourg.

Simon Guenzl: After almost four years of commuting weekly down to Richmond, VA from Westchester County, NY to work for Spider Management (the University of Richmond’s endowment office, where I run the private-equity portfolio), I have now moved my office to our house in Westchester, and am working remotely for Spider. Apparently telecommuting is a thing.

Rob Joyce: I have resigned as President & CEO of the Norican Group after seventeen years. It has been my great privilege to be part of such a successful journey, beginning with the spin off of the Wheelabrator Group from USFilter (NYSE: USF) in 2003 and through four subsequent private equity owners, two recessions, five capital raises and 2.5 million frequent flyer miles. I leave the team in great hands as I move on with the next phase of my career. https://www.noricangroup.com/en-us/about-norican/norican-news/norican-global-announces-resignation-of-president-and-ceo

Nori Kobayashi: Hi everyone I moved from Tokyo to UK and this is my 20th year in London. I enjoy my life here with my wife, Noriko and son, Ken. I work at my firm’s European HQs and currently I am in charge of M&A strategy in the region. This weekend we visited Cyrille’s house in Luxembourg and had a great time to catch up. If you plan to come to London area, please let me know!
