SVG Capital, the UK-based, listed private equity firm, has appointed Lynn Fordham as CEO and Tony Dalwood as CEO of SVG Advisers, the firm’s fund management subsidiary.
Fordham joined the SVG Capital board as finance director in July last year. Dalwood joined SVG Advisers in 2002 as head of public equities. With these appointments, Nicholas Ferguson will relinquish his interim executive role and will revert to his position of chairman of SVG Capital.
Ferguson said, “We are delighted to appoint Lynn Fordham as CEO of SVG Capital. Since joining in the middle of last year she has played a vital role in the transformation of the company’s balance sheet and the development of the group strategy. Lynn is the right person to take the company forward and the board looks forward to working with her in this role.
“We are also delighted to announce the appointment of Tony Dalwood as CEO of SVG Advisers. Tony has a strong investment background and the required skill and determination to grow SVG Advisers through its next phase.”
Andrew Williams, the former chief executive of SVG Advisers, left the firm by “mutual agreement” in March.
