YFM Equity Partners (YFM), which has offices in Leeds and Manchester, is continuing to expand its team with the appointment of Tiffany Young as investment manager. Tiffany will join YFM’s investment team to support the origination and execution of new investments across both growth capital and buyout opportunities.
Tiffany is an experienced investor having spent the last three years at venture capital fund, Pentech. Prior to this, she was part of the founding investment team at The AllBright Group.
Tiffany is a member of Founders of the Future and is an alumnus of the New Entrepreneurs Foundation. In 2015, she launched the Breakfast With Tiffany blog to provide a forum to support female founders and investors across the UK.
Jamie Roberts, partner at YFM, said: “We first met Tiffany a couple of years ago and we have watched as her career developed over that time. We are very pleased Tiffany has chosen to join us to support our growth ambitions – we have doubled the size of the team in the South over the last 12 months as well as increasing funds under management across both our growth capital and buyout strategies.
“Tiffany has a great track record and network across fast growing businesses, founders and execs in the UK which we are confident will help us increase the number of investments we are making across both of our growth capital and buyout funds.”
Tiffany said: “I have been impressed by the culture at YFM since I first met them, the wealth of experience within the team and its dual strategy of investing in both growth capital and buyout opportunities. I am looking forward to working with ambitious management teams to fulfil their growth plans.”
