U.K.-based lower mid-market buyout firm Octopus Private Equity has appointed Mark Fowler as investment manager. Fowler will be based in Octopus' Leeds office, which opened last year, with Richard Taylor, where he will focus on investment opportunities in North England.
Fowler joins from KPMG, where he spent eight years in lead advisory corporate finance. He worked on a range of transactions including fund raisings, management buy-outs, business and corporate disposals and acquisitions.
“We are delighted that Mark has joined Octopus, with his track record and contacts in the Manchester corporate finance community, his appointment further strengthens our reach in the north of England,” said Taylor. “His experience will give Octopus added vigor in identifying investment opportunities in such a fertile region for entrepreneurial, fast growing companies.”
