Peter Hodson

Investment Partner

I am an Investment Partner and part of the Buyout team, responsible for NVM’s investment activity in London

I was educated at Sir William Borlase School before obtaining an Engineering degree from Exeter University.

Building value in companies involves lots of mini successes. We are on a journey with each of our management teams that we back which involve some highs and lows but when changes are made that lead to step changes in performance, that is exciting.

I love the fact that I am learning something new every day and am privileged to work with such high calibre colleagues.

A deal I am particularly proud of was Palletways and Angel Springs but I have also completed the sale of Product Support to Wincanton, the sale of Ithaca Business Media to United Business Media and new investments in Astbury Marsden, Axial Systems, CloserStill Holdings, Mantis Deposition and Cawood Scientific.

You never forget the first time you build a strong relationship with management, decide to back a plan that leads to a successful outcome for everyone. I certainly had that with Palletways and Angel Springs.

I have always enjoyed sport and generally competing although in recent years, like many of us, I have been more focused on my family. Outside of work I chair ‘Love Africa’ – a charity focused on supporting community projects in Uganda.
