Regional Director – North, Scotland & Northern Ireland
Andy is a member of the BGF Investment Committee and leads our investment team in the North of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland, identifying and executing investments for the Fund. He sits on the board of some of BGF’s investee companies. Andy has significant experience of regional private equity, having worked as a director in the Manchester offices of ISIS Equity Partners, Bridgepoint, and Royal Bank Development Capital.
Most recently Andy was a key member of leading investment firm Key Capital Partners, based in Manchester. He is a chartered accountant with 17 years’ experience in private equity, acquisition finance and corporate finance.
He also has industry experience, having been group finance director of Pennine Retail Systems Limited, a leading UK retail software company which was successfully backed by private equity.
Andy is married with two young children and lives in Cheshire. In his limited leisure he tries, and generally fails, to impress his children by playing the piano and whilst on holiday loves to windsurf or snowboard depending on the time of year.
“I joined BGF to establish our business in the North, having been hugely excited by the prospect of helping to build a business from scratch and bring a new type funding solution to growing companies. I continue to gain huge satisfaction from working with ambitious entrepreneurs and helping them to accelerate the growth of their businesses.”
