Lyceum Capital hires two, promotes two

Lower mid market growth investor 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, and reflects the firm’s strong deal flow and pipeline of opportunities for platform investments and add on acquisitions.
With 12 years’ experience, Swallow joins from Sage Group plc 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, Swallow will work as a member of the firm’s operations team supporting portfolio companies’ accelerated growth plans and their transformation into robust, scalable businesses.
Lewis previously worked at NBGI Private Equity for four years, prior to which he was a Management Consultant with Deloitte. In his new role Lewis will work on platform and add on acquisitions, executing Lyceum’s buy and build strategy in fragmented and consolidating markets.
Simon Hitchcock (pictured), Partner at Lyceum Capital, says: “We are delighted to welcome Mark and Adam to the Lyceum team. Their appointment and the promotions reflect the strength of our operational and buy and build model in the UK lower mid market and the increasing levels of investment opportunities being generated by our direct origination team.
“We have a strong pipeline of platform and add on opportunities for our existing investee businesses, to build on our successes over the past 12 months when we made two new platform investments, one exit, and supported eight out of our nine portfolio firms with add on acquisitions.
“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.”
