Stephen Delaney brings with him seven years’ experience in private equity with Darwin Private Equity, where he worked on a number of investments in the technology, financial services and consumer sectors. Prior to that, Stephen worked in corporate finance at Citigroup and KPMG.

Antonia Cheong joins Bowmark from DC Advisory, where she was part of the corporate finance team focusing on the business services sector. She has advised on a range of acquisitions and debt transactions, including the £85 million refinancing of Leaders Lettings, a Bowmark portfolio company.

Tom Elliott spent eight years at PwC, latterly as a member of the corporate finance team focusing on the consumer and leisure sectors. He advised on the £80 million sale of JacTravel Group by Bowmark to Vitruvian Partners.

The appointments follow a busy period for Bowmark. At the end of last year it successfully raised a new fund, Bowmark Capital Partners V, at its cap of £375 million in just 10 weeks. The firm has invested approximately £100 million of equity over the past 12 months. Its portfolio companies have completed more than 20 bolt-on acquisitions during the same period.

Charles Ind, joint managing partner, said: "We are delighted to welcome Stephen, Antonia and Tom as new members of our growing investment team. Their appointment will further strengthen the firm and support the successful deployment of Bowmark Capital Partners V."
