Growth capital investor VGC Partners has promoted Andrew Lister to partner.

This promotion further strengthens VGC’s leadership team in order to support investment of its main £50m fund, which backs high-growth consumer, media and technology businesses.

This comes a year after Andrew joined the firm from Marlin Equity Partners as investment director.

Earlier this month, Andrew supported the firm’s £2.5m investment into luxury sneaker and apparel retailer Kick Game.

Andrew Lister, partner at VGC Partners comments: “I’m extremely proud to be welcomed into the partnership, especially at such a great time early in the life of VGC’s main fund.

“Having already made investments into several businesses with enormous potential, I’m looking forward to supporting the founders to succeed as well as making further new investments.”

Parminder Basran, managing partner at VGC Partners comments: “I’m delighted to promote Andrew to partner, and he will play a key role in investing and managing Fund II. This promotion recognises his ability and impact on our portfolio and reflects the firm’s continued growth as an early stage investor backing innovative founders.”
