We aren’t like most ‘private equity’ firms or venture capitalists. We didn’t spin-out of a large bank or big fund. We began 15 years ago, from our base in the UK’s Midlands, investing our own money into companies we believed could benefit from our experience in industry.
Our first investment was to buy 150-year old family business, Dane Group, which we sold to its largest US competitor. Since then we have invested across a wide variety of industrial sectors and built up our team of experienced business advisers and industrialists.
From each of these successes we have reinvested the proceeds into new businesses.
In 2016, several major financial institutions from the US and Europe asked us to invest money on their behalf too.
Andrew graduated with a degree in Business Commerce from Birmingham University and went on to qualify as an accountant with KPMG. He has run businesses in several sectors including business services, logistics and food / chemical and automotive manufacturing; and held CEO and Finance Director roles in a number of private and listed companies.
Jon studied management science at Warwick University before qualifying as a Chartered Accountant with KPMG. Over a 15 year period with KPMG, he focussed on advising mid-market businesses as well as working across a number of divisions in both Commercial Director and COO roles. Jon joins Elaghmore with responsibility for deal origination in the South West.
Becky qualified as a chartered accountant with PwC in 2013, before going on to focus on financial and operational restructuring, working across the UK and Middle East. She joined industry in 2018, providing strategy and transformation advice to a major international construction conglomerate based in Dubai. Becky joined Elaghmore in June 2020.
Adam has a law degree from Nottingham University and upon qualification was in private practice with Pinsent Masons and Norton Rose Fulbright as a corporate finance lawyer. Adam then moved in-house, joining Six Continents plc and, post demerger, Mitchells & Butlers plc. Roles then followed as General Counsel and Company Secretary of Domino’s Pizza Group plc, Selfridges Group, McCarthy & Stone plc and The Very Group. He is also a non-executive director of Cake Box plc.
We have the confidence to keep things simple. We trust our instincts, about business and people, and we can make quick decisions.
We understand the importance of working with people we like and respect.
Our experience of making companies successful allows us to draw on a vast bank of knowledge and industry contacts.
Perhaps that is why people trust us to be the owners and stewards of their life’s work and most important asset – their business.
