ICG hires David Lomer from JP Morgan as James Roddis bows out

Lomer joins ICG as head of UK, Nordics and Benelux for its European corporate strategy.

  • Lomer succeeds James Roddis, who is retiring after 14 years
  • Most recently, Lomer was co-head of UK investment banking at JP Morgan
  • Lomer co-ran M&A in EMEA from 2015 to 2019 at JP Morgan

ICG announced on Wednesday that it has appointed David Lomer as head of UK, Nordics and Benelux for its European corporate strategy. Lomer will also join ICG’s investment committee. Lomer succeeds James Roddis, who is leaving ICG after 14 years.

Lomer joins ICG from JP Morgan where he spent 24 years. Most recently, Lomer was co-head of UK investment banking. He also co-ran M&A in EMEA from 2015 to 2019.

“David brings extensive experience of M&A and capital markets transactions to the European corporate team and we look forward to his leadership as we continue to develop our business in the UK, the Nordics and Benelux,” said Benoit Durteste, CIO and CEO of ICG.

The move follows ICG’s appointment of Andrea Serra as European head earlier this month, as reported by PE Hub Europe. The London-headquartered investment firm has had a busy month, also announcing a €240 million growth investment in Zeplug, a French provider of electric vehicle charging services in multi-occupant and office buildings, via its infrastructure arm.
