(West Palm Beach, FL Ė June 21, 2010)  William A. Meyer, Chairman of the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, today announced that James W. Harpel has been named to the nonprofit organizationís Board of Directors.

 
ďWith his extensive financial background and years of experience in public service, James Harpel will be a valuable addition to the Kravis Centerís Board of Directors,Ē said Mr. Meyer.

 
As Senior Partner of Palm Beach Capital Partners, LLS, James W. Harper invests in and helps build small and medium sized companies on a private equity basis. The firm is also involved in direct real estate transactions.  In addition, he is a founder and General Partner of First Reserve Corporation, which acts as the General Partner of a series of private equity funds totaling in excess of $12 billion, primarily concentrated in the energy and power industries. 

 
Mr. Harpel also is involved primarily as an individual in a series of ventures including Security First Corp., and Beanstalk Networks Ė a company of which he is both a founder and Chairman.  Beanstalk is a managed software developer, focusing on
mortgage software.

 
For many years Mr. Harpel was involved in the marketable securities business and was the managing partner of Harpel Advisory Company, Inc., which was both a registered investment adviser and a hedge fund manager, and of Century Capital Corporation, a $2 billion registered investment adviser.  Prior to that time, he worked for investment banking firms and previously played a major operating role in the turn around of an NYSE-listed manufacturing company.

 
Mr. Harpel attended Harvard College and graduated with high distinction from Harvard Business School. He is a Member, Visiting Committee, of the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, and Director of the Schoolís Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs.  A Member of the Council of Foreign Affairs, he also is Chairman of Deanís International Council at the Harris School, University of Chicago, where he also serves as a Member of the Visiting Committee.

 
In addition, returning from a bylaws-mandated, one-year hiatus, both Herbert Gimelstob andDaniel Edward Ponton have been elected to new three-year terms on the Kravis Centerís Board of Directors.

 
Mr. Gimelstob was elected to the Board in April 2001.  During his original tenure, he served on and eventually chaired both the Employee Relations & Benefits Committee and the Building & Grounds Committee. He has also served as a member of the Development Committee and the Kravis Centerís Executive Committee (2007-2009). During his hiatus, Mr. Gimelstob remained active as a member of the two committees that he had previously chaired.

 
Mr. Ponton was first elected to the Board in April 2000, and served as Chair of the Strategic Planning Committee from its founding in 2005 through 2009. During his recent hiatus, Mr. Ponton continued to serve as an active member of this committee.

 
ďBoth Herbert Gimelstob and Daniel Edward Ponton have been invaluable members of the Kravis Centerís Board of Directors during the last decade and it is great to have them back following their bylaws-mandated one year hiatus,Ē said Mr. Meyer.
