We are sharing inspirational stories from our current and past portfolio company leaders to mark 40 years of backing ambitious mid-market businesses across the UK.
The Year Ahead at 40Few of us will ever look back on another year like 2020. The pandemic created a unique set of challenges for us all professionally and personally. Some faced adversity, others found opportunity, and everyone felt uncertainty.
But an important characteristic in the management teams we have partnered with over the last 40 years is that of ambition. And last year showed just how resilient ambition can be.
