Prior to joining Atomico, Daphne was an Associate at Lion Capital, a consumer focused investment fund, where she was responsible for investment evaluation, due diligence and transaction work streams, as well as managing some of the fund’s portfolio businesses. Daphne started her career at Terra Firma, a London-based private equity fund, where she was an Analyst in the investment team and spent time as the Chief Investment Officer’s Chief of Staff.
