Balderton Capital appoints head of legal and executive in residence

Balderton Capital has appointed Danny Bloom as Head of Legal, and Andrew Wigfall as Executive In Residence (EIR) as part of its commitment to further building out its EIR programme and portfolio support team.

The appointments follow other recent senior hires including Rachel Bremer (Chief Marketing & Communications Officer) and Elodie Broad (Head of Impact). 

In his new role, Bloom will lead Balderton’s legal team, advising on the firm’s investments and exits, and working closely with the portfolio on legal matters throughout their journey from term sheet through to exit.

Wigfall, meanwhile, is moving from his previous role as Balderton’s head of legal, into a newly created EIR position. The firm’s EIR programme launched last year with the appointment of renowned software executive and advisor Dave Kellogg, whose role includes advising Balderton’s portfolio CEOs and founders on areas including SaaS metrics, strategy, marketing and US expansion. Wigfall will work closely with Balderton companies on legal matters from advice on strategic legal projects and outreach to General Counsels, to sharing his expertise and experience to support the successful expansion of our portfolio companies.
