PRIVATE equity house WestBridge has further expanded its team with the appointment of Rebecca Sinclair as Investment Executive.
A graduate of the University of Durham, Rebecca joined the HSBC Corporate Banking Graduate Scheme, securing a Diploma in Banking Practice and Finance.
Over a period of three years, she contributed to the successful completion of over 40 transactions and became the youngest person to be promoted to Senior Associate in its leveraged finance team.
At WestBridge, Rebecca will support the investment team with deal origination, deal execution and portfolio management, specifically in London and the Midlands.
Of her move, she said:
“Moving to be a private equity principal is extremely exciting. WestBridge has a strong reputation in the market as a dynamic, growing business. Having recently closed its second fund at £140m, it’s an especially exciting time to join.”
Valerie Kendall, one of the WestBridge founding partners, said:
“Rebecca is a tremendous new team member. She is motivated and energetic, and her skills very much complement the rest of our team.”
WestBridge has offices in London, Manchester and Cardiff. It typically invests between £10-£20m into established, profitable and ambitious UK SMEs with enterprise values of between £15m and £40m.
