FPE Capital appoints Connor Trendell as Investment Manager to further support UK lower mid-market investment focus
FPE Capital LLP (‘FPE’), a growth private equity investor in UK lower mid-market companies announces the appointment of Connor Trendell as Investment Manager. Connor is FPE Capital’s second appointment following the final close of FPE Fund II.
Connor joins FPE Capital from Deloitte, where he was a member of the firm’s TMT M&A Advisory team. He is a fully qualified ACA and graduated from the University of Edinburgh with an MA (Hons) in Economics.
The appointment marks a further step in the development of the FPE Capital investment team as it continues its focus on the lower end of the UK mid-market, and builds on the recent recruitment of Chris Kay, from PwC, in the same role. Connor will be responsible for the sourcing and execution of investment opportunities.
Recent investments made by FPE Capital from its Fund II include Questionmark, a disruptive provider of assessment, proctoring and certification SaaS software for public and private sector organisations and MasstechSGL, where FPE merged two existing businesses to create an industry leading provider of mission critical middleware for the management of both storage and playout of broadcast media.
David Barbour, Managing Partner at FPE Capital, commented: “Connor has extensive transaction experience in the UK lower mid-market and a strong commitment to growth capital. His recruitment marks a further important development in the FPE team on the back of our recent final close of FPE Fund II. We had worked with Connor and his team at Deloitte and have been impressed with his professionalism and his desire to work in the UK lower mid-market”
