These promotions underline Livingbridge’s continued commitment to developing a robust and skilled network across the UK.
James joined Livingbridge’s Manchester office in 2006 after nearly a decade in corporate finance. Since joining Livingbridge, he has developed a strong track-record in partnering with fast-growing, entrepreneurial companies including many of Livingbridge’s successful Northern based investments such as On The Beach, inov-8, Giacom and Onyx Group. James played a central role in forging Livingbridge’s partnership with Bright Futures Care, a leading provider of care and education to children and young adults with learning disabilities. The investment, made through the firm’s Enterprise 2 fund, built on Livingbridge’s experience in the healthcare sector where James has also been heavily involved in several investments including Witherslack Group, Vanguard Healthcare, The SLC Group and Helping Hands.
Based in Livingbridge’s London office and members of the Investment Team and Growth Acceleration Team respectively, Joe McGee and Yun Ma will continue to support Livingbridge’s investments with high-performing companies across the firm’s key sectors.
Wol Kolade, Managing Partner of Livingbridge, said: “I am delighted to welcome James into the Partnership. His loyalty, extensive experience, and unique skillset have been invaluable in developing the strength of our Manchester office and the reputation of the firm more broadly over the past 14 years, and I wish him every success in his new role.
“These three promotions are a testament to our employees’ capabilities and showcase our ethos of investing in and rewarding their individual growth and development. I look forward to working with the strengthened leadership team in executing our ambitious growth plans as we head into 2021.”
