NorthEdge Capital has announced two promotions, with Tom Rowley becoming investment director and Phil Frame now investment manager.
Tom joined NorthEdge as investment manager at the start of 2013. He has played an instrumental role on the board of Jigsaw24 and was involved in the company’s recent acquisition of London-based Square Group, which takes turnover to more than £80m. Tom also played a lead role in the recent £66m Accrol Papers transaction. He has over 13 years’ experience working across public and private transactions, with previous positions at Deloitte and Zeus Capital.
Phil joined NorthEdge in 2012 as a senior investment executive. He was part of its maiden deal with Stockport-based FPE Global, which saw him appointed to the company’s Board as non-executive director. Phil joined from Altium and has worked on a number of buy-side and sell-side transactions within the e-commerce, retail, capital goods, and renewable energy sectors.
Grant Berry, managing partner of NorthEdge Capital, commented: “We’ve seen a strong start to 2014 and recently completed our sixth investment in Accrol Papers. NorthEdge is committed not only to investing in the North but also in our own employees. The pipeline of upcoming deals is healthy and we know that Tom and Phil will continue to support new investments and the management of our existing portfolio.”
