NXD appointed

13 October 2022

Mobeus is delighted to announce that David Williams has joined as a Non-Executive Director and will be working with the Mobeus investment team on its most recent fund, Mobeus V, which launched earlier this year.


David is a very experienced Private Equity investor and Chairman. His private equity track record spans more than three decades during which he has completed over 50 direct investments producing returns totalling over £0.5 billion to investors.

David started his career at 3i Group plc before being attracted to be founding Managing Director of the family wealth management office Sand Aire Private Equity. He subsequently had Senior Partner and Investment Committee roles at Graphite Capital and Dunedin Private Equity before embarking on a plural career in which he acts as Chairman of several founder-owned global growth companies.

Ashley Broomberg, Managing Partner, said:

“We have a strong executive team at Mobeus but felt we would benefit from the challenge and expert and objective input of a non-executive who has experience working at several high quality private equity firms. At the same time, it was crucial to us that the personality fit was right and we are delighted to have been able to convince David to join us as we continue to take our business forward with our latest fund.”

David Williams said:

“I am delighted to join Mobeus at this exciting time in their development. Looming market conditions suit their single finance investment model very well. I believe there will be good opportunities for this skilled and ambitious team to deploy cheques up to £20m into great British businesses to turbo-charge their growth both at home and abroad.

A typical example is Mobeus’s summer 2022 exit from Access Partnership, the world’s leading technology public policy advisory firm which delivers world class advice to global clients, for a 4.4x money multiple.”
