RJD Partners, a U.K.-based middle-market private equity firm, has appointed James Smallridge as an investment manager and Jill Williams as an investment executive. 

Smallridge joins from KPMG where he was involved in a wide range of deals in the consumer and waste management sectors. Williams joins from PwC Corporate Finance, where she completed a number of deals as a buy-side adviser to private equity firms in a variety of sectors including leisure and specialist distribution.

"The recruitment of James and Jill follows the successful final close of our second private equity fund in July 2007 and increases the investment team at RJD Partners to eight,” said David MacLellan, CEO. “We are seeing strong deal flow in each of our core sectors of business and financial services, IT services and leisure and the arrival of James and Jill will enable us to build on our reputation in these areas."

RJD invests in the U.K. service and leisure sector in the £10 million (US$20.5 million) to £75 million (US$153.7 million) range.
