Mobeus makes key promotions

25 July 2019

Having now invested more than half of its Institutional small-cap buyout fund and in advance of a planned VCT fundraising for its growth capital strategy, Mobeus has made a number of key promotions in its investment team.


Justin Maltz has been admitted as Partner, with the remit of leading portfolio management for its buyout fund, Mobeus Equity Partners IV LP. Justin has been working with Mobeus’s management teams since 2016 helping them achieve their ambitions for growth. He represents Mobeus on the board of several businesses, including Ludlow Wealth Management, Active Travel Group and Star Brands, the recent ninth investment by Mobeus’s buyout fund.

Guy Blackburn has also been promoted, to Portfolio Partner and will continue to work closely with Justin. Guy joined the Mobeus team in 2007 and represents Mobeus on the boards of Kinneir Dufort, Ventrica and Geobind.

Two further promotions of homegrown talent were also confirmed, Dominic Draysey to Investment Manager and Joshua Henshaw to Investment Executive. In addition, Katia Mendonça joins the team as an Investment Analyst.

“We are excited to announce these promotions, which recognise much appreciated contributions to the firm, and are richly deserved. Mobeus has had a strong first half of the year, completing four investments and two realisations. With these promotions and indeed the strength of the wider team, we look forward to continuing the momentum.”
