I am Jim Graham, Chair of Ventrica, a customer service outsourcer, backed by Mobeus. I stepped down as Chair of Fora, a Brockton Capital backed premium flexible workspace operator, in September 2022, following their merger with Blackstone owned The Office Group.
I have worked on both sides of the Private Equity fence. I spent eight years in Operating Partner roles at Candover and then Phoenix Equity Partners. I left Phoenix to join one of their investments, The Gym Group, as COO where I spent three years scaling the business and then listing it on the FTSE main exchange.
I enjoy helping PepTalks members:
- Understand the ‘unwritten’ rules of Private Equity
- Navigate the investment journey
- Develop trusting business-partner relationships with their shareholders
