Private equity firm CVC Capital Partners has announced the resignation of its long-term managing partner, Adrian MacKenzie, after 17 years with the company.


Mr MacKenzie's resignation comes after the company underwent a $2.7 billion restructure in an attempt to better deal with its stake of Nine Entertainment.


Mr MacKenzie moved from London to Asia to head the Australian unit in 1999, and has served as a member of the company's board in 2007.
