Richard Pugh


Richard joined BGF in August 2011 and is based in Aberdeen. His role is to identify and successfully execute investments for BGF then work with portfolio companies to support their growth plans. This involves meeting a range of companies to explain the type of funding that BGF provides, working with them to develop their business plans and then structuring and executing investments. Richard will then typically join the board as either an observer or director.

Richard has 10 years’ experience in investments into small and mid-sized companies. This was initially as an adviser at PwC where he was involved in over 30 corporate and private equity transactions in the UK and overseas and since 2011 at BGF, where he has been involved in seven investments so far, with a particular focus on oil service companies.

Richard has an MA in History from Oxford University. He is married with a daughter and lives in Aberdeen. When he is not running around after his daughter, Richard enjoys running around in the Cairngorms!

“I have had the opportunity to work with companies ranging from FTSE 100s to SMEs – this experience has made me realise my real passion is in working with and supporting fast growing, entrepreneurial companies which is exactly what BGF is set up to do.”
