OMERS is beefing up its London private equity office with two new hires, Isabelle Pagnotta as a Director and Bryony Marshall as an Associate to its London office. OMERS continues to build its presence in the European market and has completed three transactions since opening its London office in 2009. OMERS Private Equity has so far led the £207m acquisition of supported living provider Lifeways in June 2012 and the $520m buyout of shipping services provider V.Group in 2011. It also supported the 2009 $700m start-up of Haymarket Financial, a leading independent specialist provider of credit financing to middle-market European businesses in 2009.
