Number 25 for HIG

Nearly two years on from launching its first European dedicated fund, HIG Europe, the European affiliate of US buyout firm HIG Capital, has added the 25th member to its UK investment team with the appointment of a new London-based director.

Alastair Mills joins from Gresham Private Equity, where he was responsible for lower mid-market investments. He has over eight years’ experience in private equity, having worked with both Bridgepoint and RBS.

HIG’s UK investment team has doubled in size over the past 12 months. Since the New Year, HIG has recruited Alex Bayliss from Greenhill & Co. and Claudia Rumeu from Novator Partners.
