Dane FitzGibbon

After finishing his studies in Brisbane Dane built a 17 year career in investment banking in Sydney and Hong Kong, primarily with UBS Investment Bank.

Dane held the role of Co-head of Capital Markets for UBS Australasia for his final five years with the firm, responsible for working with companies to advise on and execute capital raising transactions.

Dane's experience was gained through executing more than 50 transactions from private capital through to ASX listings, and across the full spectrum including debt, hybrid capital and equity. 

Dane returned to Brisbane at the start of 2017 and gained operational experience through his role as the Head of Strategy at the Australian Agricultural Company.

Dane holds a Bachelor of Business degree from QUT and a Masters of Applied Finance.

Dane, his wife Monique, and their three young kids (Sean, Georgia and Bernie) are loving being back in Brisbane and spending time with extended family and friends.




Richard Dayman

Richard started his career as a consultant with McKinsey & Company, focusing on strategy and operational work with businesses in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
Richard then spent 10 years in mid-market private equity with ICG in London. He has investment experience across a wide range of industries, including business services, travel, restaurants, and food manufacturing and services. Flexible capital was a feature of these investments, with a range of situations including minority and majority equity holdings, as well as subordinated debt positions. 
These investments were in partnership with founders or family shareholders, and management teams.

Richard holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree with First Class Honours in Finance from the University of Auckland.
His wife, Christina, is originally from Brisbane and they are both enjoying the quality of life in Queensland having moved back here in 2018.

Richard has been pleasantly surprised by how little grief he has received (to date...) for being a Kiwi.
