Our People

We work collaboratively towards the same vision as management teams

Our entrepreneurial spirit mirrors that of the management teams we back. We innovate, embrace change, take risks and trust our gut, in line with the leadership qualities of our founders. We give people the room to run their businesses, whilst helping with ideas, introductions and challenges when needed. We’re a team that are straight-talking, down to earth and deliver on our promises. We’re good listeners – interested not self-interested.

What we try to do at Palatine is develop the right atmosphere to work in, to be successful and to make Palatine a great business to be part of. We treat people the right way and give people the ability to grow. Palatine is as much about the people as any of our investee companies. For me it’s all about the people.

Whether they are part of our investment, finance, professional support, direct origination, sustainability, strategic growth, portfolio or marketing teams, we work extremely well together because we have a united vision – it’s not just private equity, it’s positive equity. And we have plenty of fun along the way.
