Omni names two new partners

Omni Partners (Omni) has bolstered its team with the appointment of Wayne Story and Phill Rowland as Partners. Both will bring additional valuable experience to the founders and management teams that Omni invests in, according to the investment firm.

Story has 40 years of experience, with the last 15 spent as an accomplished CEO leading multiple PE-backed businesses, namely Civica, Equiniti and Equatex. More recently, he was recruited to serve as Chair of Vivup, the UK’s leading wellbeing and employee benefits provider backed by Omni.

Story retired after seven successful years as CEO of Civica, transforming the company into a fast-growing, global GovTech software business with revenues of more than £500m.

Rowland joins Omni with over 30 years’ experience in finance. In his last role, he was the CFO of Civica and spent 12 years at the company, where he worked closely alongside Story and the management team to increase revenue from circa £150m to £500m and EBITDA from £24m to £111m through three cycles of private equity ownership.

Rowland also played a key role in Civica’s acquisition strategy, from assessing value to raising funds through to driving the integration of the businesses.

Omni focuses on investing in fast-growing companies seeking their first external capital, providing capital and expertise to turbocharge their growth.
