“Guy was instrumental in achieving the MBO of Tessella in 2012 and substantially contributed to its growth strategy by applying his broad industry experience together with a genuine understanding of Tessella’s culture and business model. Mobeus (and Guy’s involvement in particular) was crucial to the successful exit of Tessella in 2015, which delivered against all stakeholders' aspirations.

"Having operated over the past two years in a Chair role on the board of Kinneir Dufort, working alongside Guy, I am again impressed by the pragmatism and insight Guy and Mobeus bring to the board and how supportive their approach is toward a hard working and hugely committed management team. Guy’s and more generally Mobeus’s culture fits so well with management teams seeking a trusted and value enhancing financial partner.”
