LDC builds team

LDC’s Midlands team has been strengthened with the appointment of Chris Hurley. Hurley joins as an investment director and will be working with management teams and advisors across the region to build on LDC’s investment portfolio which includes electrical group Electrium, Steelite, Adams Childrenswear and MBP.

Hurley previously worked for Aberdeen Murray Johnstone Private Equity as an investment director and also held roles in the corporate finance departments of Ernst & Young and RSM Robson Rhodes. He said: “LDC has a strong Midlands franchise in mid-market private equity transactions and, in my view, is the clear market leader.”
