LDC’s Reading office has once again been recognised at the South East Dealmaker Awards, with the team’s investment in Rush named Private Equity Deal of the Year.
The leading hair and beauty brand secured a £16million minority investment from LDC in January 2017 to support its national rollout programme. The deal was praised by judges for its potential for further growth and job creation.
Yann Souillard, director and head of LDC in the South, said: “We had a standout year in 2017 and this award is testament to the hard work of both our team and the management team at Rush. With such a strong brand proposition and clear vision for future growth, the business has excellent prospects and we’re looking forward to continuing to work together to elevate the brand to a truly national level.”
This award is the latest in a string of accolades for LDC and follows a successful 2017, which saw the South team collect multiple awards including Private Equity Firm of the Year at the Thames Valley Deal Awards.
