HIG Europe adds managing director in London

Private equity firm HIG Capital has appointed Henry Gregson as a managing director in its London office. Prior to joining HIG, Gregson was a Partner at Pamplona Capital, a EUR1.3 billion fund based in London. Before that, he spent several years at the private equity arm of Royal Bank of Scotland, where he led a number of successful transactions.

Gregson says: “I am delighted to join a leading organisation such as HIG, with a unique business model focused on providing deep operational and strategic resources, and a very flexible capital base which enables it to invest both in debt and equity. I believe HIG is uniquely positioned to continue building on it past success, especially in the difficult current economic environment”.
Sami Mnaymneh, co-Founder and Managing Partner of HIG, says: “We are very excited to have Henry join our team and help us further build our European capabilities. With more than 40 investment professionals based in the UK, Germany and France, we already have one of the largest private equity teams focused on small and lower mid-market transactions across Europe”.
HIG Europe, the European arm of HIG Capital, manages a dedicated fund and completed 11 new European investments in 2011.
