Matt Newbold

Investment Director

Matt works closely with management teams across the Midlands looking to grow their business and is responsible for identifying ambitious teams that would benefit from the support of a private equity partner.

Since joining LDC in 2012, Matt has invested more than £200million across nine high-profile businesses in the Midlands, including The NEC Group, Prism Medical, Stuart Turner, Eley, SMH Fleet and CitySprint. During the firm’s four-year partnership with Prism, Matt worked closely with the management team to help accelerate its buy and build strategy, increase exports and invest heavily in new product development.

After graduating from Nottingham Trent University with a First Class Degree in Accounting & Finance and qualifying as a Chartered Accountant, Matt gained eight years of corporate finance experience with PwC and Alantra (Catalyst Corporate Finance), working in the UK and North America.

My spare time is mostly devoted to my wife and three children, but I also enjoy keeping fit when I can!
