Gary Davison

TDC’s Managing Partner, Gary Davison, established TDC in 2015 after identifying a gap in the regional private investment market where the needs of SMEs were underserved. He drives TDC’s strategy and leads our growing team, by identifying new talent to bring into the business as it expands. He also leads fundraising and investor relations, and, as TDC’s Head of Investment Committee, plays an important role in deal structuring, closing and portfolio management.

A former EY Debt Advisory Partner, Gary raised TDC’s maiden Fund along with his EY colleague and fellow TDC Managing Partner, Richard Williams. Gary also oversees deployment of capital and material added-value to TDC’s growing investment portfolio, which has been proven through ongoing successful exits.
