Boost for NorthEdge in the North West following latest hire

NorthEdge Capital, the private equity firm focused on investing in businesses in the North of England, has strengthened its team with the appointment of Harry Jones as an Investment Executive in its Manchester office.

Harry joins NorthEdge from Deloitte, where he qualified as a Chartered Accountant within the Corporate Finance M&A Advisory team and advised on a range of major transactions including disposals, management buyouts, mergers and acquisitions.  Most recently, in August, Harry advised Palatine Private Equity on its sale of Wealth at Work to Equistone Partners Europe.

Harry joined NorthEdge on 7th September and will work on the firm’s investment opportunities across the North West.

Harry Jones said: “NorthEdge is one of the best-known and most prolific private equity houses in the North of England, with a strong and distinctive brand. I have worked closely with NorthEdge in the past and have seen the difference it is able to make through its collaborative and passionate approach to investing in exceptional businesses. I look forward to working with the team and building the business across the North.”

Grant Berry, Managing Partner at NorthEdge Capital, added: “We are delighted to welcome Harry to the NorthEdge team at such an exciting time for the firm. Harry brings with him some excellent skills and experience and has already worked on some of the region’s most high profile deals. It is a particularly strong time for NorthEdge as we expect to complete a number of investments over the next few years, continuing to help companies across the North achieve their ambitions.”

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.
