Preqin, the global leader empowering the alternatives community with essential data and insights, has appointed Nosheen Amir-Ebrahimi as the firm’s first Chief Commercial Officer. Nosheen will oversee and drive Preqin’s commercial strategy, with a clear focus on designing best-in-class services and products to help the firm’s clients succeed in the ever-evolving alternative assets industry.
Nosheen – who has almost twenty years of experience – previously worked at Goldman Sachs, IHS Markit, and most recently as Head of Strategy, M&A and Partnerships, at S&P Global Sustainable1. Nosheen’s experience in leading IHS Markit’s derivatives data & valuations business, where she oversaw significant revenue growth and margin expansion through deep client engagement, organic investments, and strategic acquisitions, will be incredibly valuable for her new role at Preqin. Nosheen’s recent experience in leading the ESG strategy for S&P Global will also be beneficial when further developing Preqin’s ESG Solutions, the only product suite to provide private market participants with a 360-degree view of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risk, impact and opportunity.
Commenting on the appointment, Christoph Knaack, CEO of Preqin, says: “We are incredibly excited to have Nosheen on board. Her experience will be instrumental in continuing to focus on the evolving needs of our clients and developing cutting-edge solutions for them. Over the last year, we have launched and developed unique products, including ESG Solutions, Company Intelligence and our market-leading asset-level benchmarks.

Everyone I have met so far has been incredibly passionate and forward-thinking. Preqin has a wealth of market-leading data, products and services for the private markets. I truly believe we play a vital role in helping our clients make better data-driven investment decisions.”
