Business Strategist Hire Strengthens Palatine


We have strengthened our Value Enhancement team with the appointment of Matt Cobbold as Strategic Growth Manager.

Matt will work across both Palatine’s Buyout and Impact Funds, supporting investee companies to identify, prioritise and execute a range of strategic growth initiatives.

He joins from OneWeb, the international satellite internet service provider, where as Corporate Development Manager he supported the scale-up company’s CFO and CEO on business planning and go-to-market strategy.  A graduate of Civil and Environmental Engineering from Imperial College London, Matt’s experience includes working at ‘Strategy&’, the global strategy consulting division of PwC.

He said: “Palatine’s approach to value enhancement really stands out in the mid-market and I am extremely pleased to have joined the firm at such an exciting time, following a record year and the launch of an exciting new brand identity focused on positive equity.

“I am looking forward to using my skills to work with our current and future portfolio companies to help them become stronger and more sustainable businesses.”

Matt has an impressive track record of driving corporate strategy across a broad range of sectors. He’s an excellent addition to our Value Enhancement team, led by Gareth Wilson, which is embedded across both our funds and integral to our mission of delivering returns through sustainable growth.
