Palatine adds to Manchester team

Palatine Private Equity has made a new addition to its Manchester team with the appointment of Tom Ross-Jones as Portfolio Director.

Ross-Jones, who is a qualified chartered accountant, joins Palatine from EY, where he spent 11 years with the business advisory firm. Tom has advised businesses on a range of transactions and restructuring programmes and went on to work in the operational transactions services team, which involved completing due diligence for private equity backed buyouts, as well as advising on business carve-outs and post-merger integrations.
Ross-Jones will work alongside Steve Donaldson, Head of Portfolio, and Partner Ed Fazakerley. In his new role, he will help to manage the existing portfolio of investments and work with investee companies to drive further growth.
Ross-Jones says: “With an increasing portfolio of mid-market businesses, it is an exciting time to be joining Palatine. I am looking forward to working alongside Ed and Steve to support management teams to make a difference to their business and achieve their growth plans.”
Ed Fazakerley, Partner at Palatine Private Equity, says: “Tom’s experience of identifying problems before they occur and presenting innovative solutions that can help boost growth will be essential in his new role. Efficiency and sustainability are a focus for our businesses and Tom will play an instrumental role in identifying new opportunities that will better these areas.
“We are excited to welcome him on board as we continue to expand our portfolio and seek out the best solutions for our businesses.”
