Sam Fuller, managing director and head of the consumer team at international investment bank Altium, has been promoted to head of the London office.
Sam joined Altium in 2000 and has worked on a wide range of both public and private market mandates, completing a large number of leisure, retail and ecommerce transactions ranging from IPOs and sale mandates to private equity-led growth fundraisings.
Most recently, Sam advised the Singh Family Trust on the £1.9bn sale of New Look to Brait and the £304m public-to-private buyout of UK-based restaurant operator Prezzo by TPG Capital.
Other recent deals completed by the London team include the sale of sofa.com to CBPE Capital, the sale of Surfdome to online Austrailian retailer SurfStitch and the refinancing of travel business, Scott Dunn. The team, headed by Sam, consists of 20 executives, including 5 managing directors.
This follows a stellar year for Altium, which in 2014 completed over 50 deals, pushing the company’s total deal value in the last three years over £9bn.
Sam Fuller, head of London office, said: “I am delighted to be leading the London team at a time when we are building real momentum based on a great pipeline of mandates. With a number of recent new hires and the recruitment of a debt advisory team, we are well set to capitalise on what has been a great start to 2015.”
Phil Adams, chief executive at Altium, said: “Sam has been an integral part of the team over the last 15 years. With his wealth of experience in the consumer and retail sectors, I am delighted that Sam is heading up our London operations. We have had a successful first quarter as a business, and with a strong deal pipeline across the board, Sam will be a valuable asset for the business.”
