BGF appoints senior investor to Midlands team

BGF – the growth capital investor – has continued to expand its Midlands team, with the appointment of David Bellis as investor.

David joins BGF from Alantra Corporate Finance and brings more than eight years’ corporate and M&A advisory experience to the role. The qualified chartered accountant, who started his career at PwC, will be based at the company’s Midlands office.

At BGF, David will be responsible for all aspects of the investment process, including identifying and executing investments, through to working with the management teams of portfolio companies post-investment.

Gurinder Sunner, head of BGF in the Midlands, said: “We’re delighted to welcome David to BGF, at what is an exciting time not only for the company, but also for the region.

“BGF’s deal activity in the Midlands has been very strong during the year, with in excess of £80 million of capital being deployed to an array of exciting growth economy companies. By bolstering our team with people of David’s experience, we are perfectly positioned to respond to the demands of the regional and national marketplace over the coming 12 months.”

David said: “Having spent the last four years advising on and executing transactions, I am excited at the prospect of working with entrepreneurs and business owners as they scale their companies. BGF’s strategy of providing growth capital, being a supportive partner and helping business owners achieve their ambitions, really resonates with me and I am thrilled to be here.”
