LDC, the mid-market private equity investor, has bolstered its team in Yorkshire with the appointment of Leigh Daveran as an Investment Director.

Mr Daveran will work closely with LDC’s Head of Yorkshire and the North East John Garner and the LDC team to drive new investment opportunities across the region’s growing community of medium-sized businesses.

He will also have responsibility for supporting the management teams of LDC’s portfolio businesses across the region.

Prior to joining LDC, Mr Daveran spent eight years as CFO of private equity backed building product manufacturer Synseal Extrusions. During his tenure he led an acquisitive growth strategy that brought seven complementary businesses into the group, growing the business to £140 million turnover.

John Garner, Head of Yorkshire and the North East at LDC, said: “Leigh’s considerable M&A and board level experience makes him a perfect addition to our team in the Yorkshire region.

“I’m confident he’ll play an integral role in our efforts to support the management teams of leading local mid-market businesses.”
