Double recruit for August

UK small cap investment firm August Equity has added Mehul Patel and Ranji Goodwin to its investment team.

Patel joins the firm as an associate from PricewaterhouseCoopers corporate finance. In his new role, he will be responsible for executing deals across four sectors – healthcare, technology and media, industrial products and business services.

Joining August from BNP Paribas, Goodwin will take on the role of fund analyst. As part of her new appointment, she will be responsible for fund and portfolio company performance reporting.

Patel and Goodwin are the first appointments August has made in over a year. In May 2008, Aatif Hassan and Keith Davidson were promoted to investment directors.
