NorthEdge celebrates national award success

NorthEdge Capital has been crowned a winner at the prestigious British Private Equity Awards 2015.

The national event, which was held in London by unquote”, celebrates innovation and excellence in private equity, as well as honoring the industry’s ability to help build British businesses.

NorthEdge beat off competition from UK healthcare investor Apposite Capital and investment firm H2 Equity Partners, which has offices in Amsterdam and London, to take home the award for Small Buyout House of the Year.

The judges said: “NorthEdge is a clear favourite. They have proven their investment strategy of targeting the North of England by the sheer number of deals they have executed over the past year. And it seems clear that the strategy will more than pay off over the coming years. This is a really excellent team which deserves recognition as a leading private equity house.”

This week has also seen one of the firm’s portfolio companies recognised for its success after Stoke-on-Trent-based manufacturing group DW3 Products’ CEO, Gareth Mobley was named a national winner at EY’s Entrepreneur of the Year Awards. Mobley was praised for his ‘determination to be both disruptive and innovative’ as well as supporting local charities and being a strong advocate for UK manufacturing.

Grant Berry, Managing Partner at NorthEdge Capital, said: “It is a massive achievement for NorthEdge to be recognised on a national scale at the unquote” Private Equity Awards, especially given this is based on a vote from our peers in the wider marketplace.  I am also delighted to congratulate Gareth and the entire DW3 team on their fantastic achievement at the EY Entrepreneur of the Year National Awards.   We have more quality deals in the pipeline, and we will continue to focus on helping British businesses fulfill their true potential in the North of England over the coming years.”

NorthEdge has made 11 investments from its maiden fund, representing over £140m of investment into the Northern business community during the last two and a half years.
