Joe Wilson


Joe joined BGF in July 2013 and is based in the London office. He is responsible for originating, executing and managing investments in London and the south east. He has been involved in six transactions to date and leads BGF’s AIM activities in the region.

Prior to BGF Joe spent three years as an investment director at EPIC Private Equity, a fund focused on growth capital investments in, and buyouts of, UK SMEs. Joe was a director of several portfolio companies in the retail, consumer and business services sector.

He began his career as a management consultant with McKinsey & Company, working across a range of sectors. Before entering the private equity industry in 2010, Joe worked at and led strategic projects in the UK sports business, principally in product development and marketing.

Joe has an MA in Economics & Management from Oxford University. He is married with two children and lives in Kent. Outside of work he plays a dwindling amount of golf and hobbles around several triathlon courses each summer.

“The most exciting aspect of my role is meeting with a wide variety of entrepreneurs and ultimately working with them to achieve their ambitions. We bring a different form of funding and support to UK SMEs and as a result we have the opportunity to back some of the most appealing businesses in the country.”
