Team Aztec's success at the Human Race Financial Times Triathlon

At the Aztec Group we hold participation with charity events close to our hearts, as well as having a passion for all things athletic and competitive.

The Financial Times Triathlon in support of Impetus – The Private Equity Foundation was therefore an incredible opportunity to participate in an event which supports a hugely important cause, as well as allowing our in-house athletes a challenge. The Private Equity Foundation provides charities and organisations, which focus on transforming the lives of the UK’s most disadvantaged children and young people, with financial support and expertise to succeed and grow.

The Financial Times along with event organisers Human Race and associate partner the BVCA hosted their inaugural Triathlon on 13 September 2014. The race took place at Eton Dorney Lake in Berkshire, which interestingly was the 2012 Olympic rowing lake. The triathlon was specifically aimed at private equity, venture capital and associated industries making it the first time that the industry have collaborated to compete and raise awareness for a great cause.

Aztec Group entered one team and one individual to represent us in the triathlon. ‘Team Aztec’ was made up of John Gavey, Chief Operating Officer in Jersey, who began the race by diving into the swimming leg, Paul Millar, Associate Director in Jersey, who furiously pedalled the cycling leg, and Jonathan Evans, Senior Financial Reporting Manager in Jersey, who sprinted over the finish line. And taking on all of these feats individually was Mark Wanless, Director in Jersey.

John Gavey commented “It was an honour for the Aztec Group to join forces with others in the industry to support the fantastic work carried out by The Private Equity Foundation. We were proud to partake in an event which was a great success and brought together so many key members of the industry.”

We would like to congratulate Mark on his incredible solo performance, finishing the triathlon in sixth position with a total time of 1:11:47, and our relay team John, Paul and Jonny on their impressive team performance, finishing second out of 50 teams in the relay with a total time of 1:13:38.
