Dave Furlong

What is your role: I’m responsible for our private equity fund, investing in high quality businesses across the North West looking for help with accelerating their growth, change of ownership (management buy-out etc), succession planning, partial de-risking of owners stakes in businesses and acquisition strategies.

Hobbies outside of work. I’m a keen (but very lapsed!) guitarist who’s moved into the ‘all the gear and no idea’ phase of life. I’m also a Liverpool FC season ticket holder, and lover of rugby, cricket and ice hockey. I’m also a listening volunteer for Samaritans. I also love walking our Labrador with my wife and two daughters. When I can keep up with them….

Favourite Album: Tough choice in a crowded field, but In Rainbows by Radiohead.
