NorthEdge adds to new business team with PwC hire

NorthEdge Capital, the private equity firm focused on investing in the North of England, has appointed PwC dealmaker Dan Matkin as Investment Manager.

Matkin spent eight years working at PwC within the company’s Corporate Finance and Assurance divisions. In his role as Assistant Director, Dan led a number of private equity transactions and during the last year oversaw the GBP150 million sale of Poundworld to TPG Capital, the GBP52 million sale of Nexus Rental to Bowmark Capital and the sale of energy solutions provider Mark Group to NYSE-listed Sun Edison.
Educated at Newcastle University and a qualified Chartered Accountant, Dan will work alongside Partner Ray Stenton to help drive NorthEdge’s new business efforts following the recent closure of its GBP300 million Fund II.
Ray Stenton, Partner and Head of New Business, says: “We are delighted to have Dan on board as we explore new investment opportunities across the North. It has been a fantastic 12 months for NorthEdge, where we have raised our second fund and recruited some top talent across our Manchester and Leeds offices. Dan has been involved in a number of stand out deals during his time at PwC and I am certain his M&A expertise will add tremendous value to the entrepreneurs that we work with.”
Dan Matkin, Investment Manager at NorthEdge Capital, adds: “It is a very exciting time to be joining the firm.  The North of England continues to be a great place to do business and there are a lot of ambitious management teams out there that have huge potential for growth. The level of knowledge and expertise at NorthEdge is second to none and I am proud to be part of such a quality team.”
