Angus Duthie-Jackson has joined Perwyn as an Associate in its expanding Private Growth Capital team and will be based in Perwyn’s London office. The appointment supports Perwyn’s ambitious growth plans, with further hires expected in the coming weeks and months.
Angus joins Perwyn from August Equity LLP, where he focussed on new investment alongside holding Board Observer roles with businesses in the healthcare and technology sectors. After completing a majority investment in Air IT, an IT Managed Service Provider, Angus oversaw a rapid period of acquisitive growth, with six acquisitions completed within fifteen months that included three national lockdowns. Angus was also part of the team that completed a majority investment in the market leading cyber security specialist, Integrity 360. Post acquisition he supported on a refinance of the business that unlocked sufficient headroom to undertake a period of significant investment for growth. Within healthcare, Angus supported a senior leadership team transition and refinance at Berkeley Home Health, a UK-based live-in and complex care services provider. He also supported on a successful material acquisition and associated refinance at Orbis Education and Care, a leading provider of residential and education services to children and young adults with complex needs.
Prior to his career at August Equity, Angus was an Associate at KPMG, where he worked on both buy-side and sell-side transactions to trade and private equity within the Consumer Goods and Retail sector. Transactions included the sale of Patisserie Valerie to Causeway Capital, Jack Wills to Sports Direct and Fourpure Brewing Company to Lion Pty, the Australian based global beverage company.
Andrew Wynn, Founder and Managing Partner of Perwyn, commented: “We are delighted that Angus has joined our team and would like to welcome him to Perwyn.

His skills are invaluable to us as we build out our team and grow our business. Angus is a great addition to the team, and we wish him every success in his career.”
