UK lower mid-market buyout firm Lyceum Capital has expanded its team to 24 with the appointments of Mark Swallow as operations manager, and Adam Lewis as investment executive.
This follows the promotions of Humphrey Baker and Martin Wygas to investment director earlier this year,
Swallow, pictured, joins from Sage Group, where he was head of finance for Sage Pay. Prior to that he held roles at Discovery Communications Europe, Accord Group and Casio Electronics.
At Lyceum he will work as a member of the firm’s operations team supporting portfolio companies’ accelerated growth plans and their transformation into robust, scalable businesses, the firm said in a statement.
Lewis previously worked at NBGI Private Equity for four years, prior to which he was a management consultant with Deloitte.
In his new role he will work on platform and add-on acquisitions, executing the firm’s buy and build strategy in fragmented and consolidating markets.
“Mark and Adam are joining Lyceum at an exciting and important time for us as we continue to invest in and expand our business, and we are confident that they will prove excellent additions to the team,” said Lyceum partner Simon Hitchcock.
Earlier this week AltAssets reported that Lyceum is gearing up for a first close for its third fund at the end of this month, according to two people with knowledge of the matter.
The London-based firm has completed a total of 13 platform and add-on deals in the last 12 months.
