James Winterbottom - Palatine

James Winterbottom

Senior Investment Director


I enjoy the variety of working with different businesses, where all situations are unique and yet there are many parallels, where past experiences can be invaluable. I am keen to support management teams to unlock new opportunities to generate value, where sometimes the day job means there is not enough time or resource to drive new initiatives through.

As a Senior Investment Director, I have experience on a number of boards with particular involvement in growing businesses internationally and through acquisition. One of my sectors of focus is business services.

I joined Palatine in 2008 following five years in investment banking where I worked on a wide range of M&A transactions.

Outside of work I enjoy rugby, cycling and getting outdoors, spending time with my young family and catching up with friends, which normally involves some good food and a few drinks.
