Dunedin has announced that Giles Derry and Mark Ligertwood have been appointed directors. Mark Ligertwood joined Dunedin in 1999 following a six-month secondment from Ernst & Young’s Corporate Finance department where he qualified as a chartered accountant. During his time at Dunedin he has completed the MBOs of Zenith Vehicle Contracts, RSL Steeper and ABI (UK); the MBO/MBI of Gardner Aerospace; and the acquisition of Group Trust. In the past year Ligertwood has been closely involved in the fundraising for the Dunedin Buyout Fund II, which closed at £250m, having exceeded its initial £200m target.
