Mobeus announces trio of appointments to Growth team
Mobeus is delighted to announce that Investment Director Joe Krancki, Investment Executive Matt Jones and Portfolio Director Simon Bursell have joined the Mobeus Growth team.
Mobeus has invested almost £65 million and achieved a run of ten full exits averaging 2.7x over the last 18 months. With a buoyant investment and M&A market expected to continue as the UK cautiously moves out of lockdown, these new appointments position the Mobeus team well to take advantage of all opportunities.
Joe joins from Frog Capital, where he was a Partner and founding team member. He has over 20 years’ experience helping to build, transform and grow technology-led businesses across North America and Europe. His previous investments and board experience include Mediatonic (secondary to Synova Capital, acquired by Epic Games), EDITED (secondary to Wavecrest Growth Partners) and Skimlinks (acquired by Connexity).
Matt adds strong corporate finance skills to the team from his six years’ experience working with mid-market and large cap PE firms across a range of acquisitions, disposals and strategic investment decisions at his previous roles with HMT and more recently Ernst & Young.
Simon has spent more than 30 years supporting, financing and advising SMEs. He represents Mobeus on the board of several businesses, including Caledonian Leisure, Proactive Investors and CGI.

“It’s great to have added Joe, Matt and Simon’s skills and experience to our Growth Investment team.
“Mobeus has identified a number of interesting areas of the economy which will benefit from investment and with the potential for significant value growth. There are some very driven entrepreneurs and management teams who are not allowing the pandemic to deter them from grasping opportunity. The level of investment opportunities is high.
“In addition, our portfolio spans all sectors and UK regions, and totals over 45 businesses. We have had an extraordinary 18 months, supporting those business in all the challenges and opportunities they have faced, and achieving a remarkable run of exits and IPOs in the process. I believe we have assembled one of the strongest portfolio teams around and are well positioned to leverage this experience in developing our investee companies.”
