Private equity house YFM Equity Partners (YFM), which has offices in London, Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester, is continuing to invest in its team with the promotion of Adam Hart to investment director.
Having joined YFM as an investment manager in 2018, Adam has been involved in making seven new investments including leading the growth capital investment into Outpost earlier this year. In the last 12 months Adam has also worked on the £7m primary buyout of loss adjustor and claims management specialist GHG and represents YFM on the board of Sharpcloud.
Prior to joining YFM, Adam spent three years in an SME-focussed corporate finance role, advising management teams and business owners on MBO’s, sale transactions and raising growth capital.
“Since joining YFM, Adam has made a valuable contribution to YFM and his promotion is well-deserved recognition of his hard work. It also reflects our commitment to developing young talent in the industry,” said partner and head of new investments in the South, Jamie Roberts.
“After a year of significant investment activity, with six new investments and two portfolio acquisitions, we are continuing our investment in the YFM South based new investment team, which has grown from a team of four to seven in the last two years.”
Adam commented: “After a fantastic three years with YFM, I am thrilled to have been promoted to the role of investment director. It’s an exciting time to be part of the team as we continue to grow our team and investment activity across the UK. I am looking forward to continuing to work with great management teams seeking an investment partner to support them on the next stage of their growth journey.”
