Richard-Swann Richard Swann Partner

Richard Swann

Richard is a Partner and member of the Investment Committee. He leads Inflexion’s focus on buyout opportunities.

Since his arrival in 2008, Richard has been involved in many of Inflexion’s investments including Calco, Chambers and PartnersOcorian, Kynetec, Alcumus Group, UK Power Reserve and Succession. Richard also co-led the investment and subsequent exits of CMO, Rhead Group, Phlexglobal, National Accident Helpline, FDM Group plc and Sanne Group plc; the latter three via successful IPOs.

Being born in Sheffield makes him at heart a Blades fan, but Richard now lives in Birmingham having studied Biochemistry at Birmingham University. As a result he is fast transferring allegiances to the Baggies – the team his sons cheer on.  Richard has an MBA from Warwick and prior to Inflexion was a Partner at Andersen and Deloitte, and also spent some time with LDC.

The reason I enjoy Inflexion is our shared culture – ambitious, creative and collegiate. I think we work best with those management teams who share these characteristics. Richard Swann, Partner
