MML Capital Partners has further increased the size of its UK team following the close of their fifth fund in 2011 at €252m
The addition of Richard Mayers as an Investment Director in the London team is the culmination of the latest round of MML recruitment following two earlier appointments in London and one in Paris over the last 6 months.
Prior to joining MML, Richard was a Director in the Strategic Business Services team at National Australia Bank, having previously lead a large number of UK mid-market private equity financed transactions as part of NAB's Leverage Finance team. Most notably these included Retail Decisions, Clarion Events, AKW Medicare and Healthcare at Home.
Prior to this, Richard also gained experience at Goldman Sachs European Leverage Finance and Ernst and Young having qualified as a Chartered Accountant at Arthur Andersen in the Global Corporate Finance division.
Bal Johal, Managing Partner in MML's London office said "we are in a growth phase as a business, we have made three new investments in the last year, exited eight and raised a new fund - the decision to bring Richard onto the team was an easy one!"
