Deepbridge Appoints New Venture Partner

Deepbridge are pleased to announce that we have appointed  Simon Thellwall-Jones to the newly created role of Venture Partner. 

Simon Thellwall-Jones brings a wealth of experience to Deepbridge as a qualified Chartered Accountant, an experienced company Director and a corporate finance expert, with his most recent roles being Investment Director at MSIF, followed by Director of Technology Ventures for the Development Bank of Wales. In his new role, he will initially be focused on working with a number of Deepbridge's high-growth portfolio companies, whilst also working on a number of new fund opportunities. 

Ian Warwick, Managing Partner at Deepbridge, commented: 

“Deepbridge has grown rapidly over recent years, becoming one of the largest EIS fund managers, and in order to continue to provide the hands-on support to our maturing portfolio of investees, it is important that we enhance our structure and team.  I am delighted that Simon, an experienced finance professional who we have worked alongside for years, has joined the team to further augment our proposition.” 

This appointment forms part of a wider restructure within Deepbridge, with Dr. Savvas Neophytou moving from the role of Head of Life Sciences to become Chief Investment Officer, Louise Farley becoming Head of Private Placement, Andrew Aldridge as Chief Marketing Officer and Steve Shallcross, Chief Information & Technology Officer, now a partner. 

Dr. Savvas Neophytou,  Chief Investment Officer at Deepbridge, added: 

“Our approach to providing investors with access to early-stage companies is relatively unique and we require a certain skillset, which Simon has in abundance. We look forward to continuing our growth and supporting more early-stage companies. We have a number of exciting announcements ahead as we continue to grow our team, so watch this space.”
