James Painter - Palatine

James Painter

Senior Investment Director


I enjoy working with management teams to deliver their business plan and help make them a success.

As a Senior Investment Director, my role includes investment appraisal and selection where I spend a lot of time meeting with entrepreneurs and getting to know their businesses. I devote a significant amount of time upfront in understanding businesses and work continuously with management teams post deal to help them create value and meet their growth aspirations.

I joined Palatine in February 2016 from KPMG Corporate Finance and have over 10 years’ experience across corporate finance and private equity. I am a Chartered Accountant and graduated with a First Class Management degree from the University of Nottingham.

Outside of work I enjoy playing football, skiing and planning my next travel destination.
