Completion of investment into Mountain Healthcare - September 2018

Founded in 2014 by four co-founders, Mountain Healthcare provides specialist healthcare services supporting the interface between healthcare and the criminal justice system

We are pleased to assist the four founders in achieving their differing objectives from a transaction. Two retired from the business, while the other two individuals remained as shareholders and took key roles within an enlarged and strengthened team. They will be joined by:


  • Chris Sellers as CEO and Chairman (formerly the Group BD Director at Capita and a member of the plc Board, as well as MD of Capita's Health Division)

  • Raj Phagura as CFO (formerly of Capita, as a Commercial Director, PwC & Goldman Sachs)


We are looking forward to working with the team to assist them with the next stage of growth and looking at new opportunities, including acquisitions for the first time

The transaction involved senior debt financing provided by Santander UK and RSM as sell-side advisors


Subsequent to the transaction, Mountain has made two further senior hires:

  • Michelle Darraugh as Operations Director (formerly of Capita & Detica)

  • Richard Atkinson as Business Development Director (formerly of Capita & CapGemini)

The business also completed its first ever acquisition in December 2019. This was of a healthcare-focused data analytics business based in Manchester

This was followed by a second acquisition in August 2020 of a business based in West Sussex, which supports individuals experiencing complex mental health issues to succeed in community placements

Both of these acquisitions give Mountain access to large and growing segments of healthcare services, while also helping to gain greater insight and adding more value to its clients
