Dunedin Capital Partners, a London and Edinburgh-based mid-market private equity house, has added David Williams as a director. Williams joins from UK-based Graphite Capital, where he was a senior partner.
Dunedin, the mid-market private equity house, is pleased to announce that David Williams has joined the firm as a director in its London office. David will be responsible for sourcing and executing new investments for Dunedin’s £250m buyout fund.
According to Ross Marshall, chief executive of Dunedin:
“I have known David for over 20 years and am delighted that we have persuaded him to join Dunedin. He was instrumental in Dunedin’s successful acquisition of Sand Aire Private Equity in 2005.
“David’s appointment in a senior role significantly enhances our investment capability and demonstrates our ongoing commitment to growing our business. He brings an excellent investment track record and extensive contact base built up over 25 years in private equity.”
David Williams, director of Dunedin, continues:
“Exciting times lie ahead for the business. The portfolio is in great shape and the firm has significant firepower to invest. The next two years will prove to be a good time to deploy capital with dealflow increasing as the country recovers from a deep recession.”
David joins Dunedin from Graphite Capital where he was a senior partner between 2005 and 2010. Prior to that he was managing director of Sand Aire Private Equity between 1997 and 2005. He began his private equity career at 3i in Cardiff and London where he was an investment director. He is a BVCA Council member and chairman of its Investor Relations committee.
