Beechbrook Capital names investment director for Midlands




Beechbrook Capital has appointed Paul Whitehouse (pictured above) as investment director to head up deal origination and execution activity across the Midlands.

Paul — who has more than 30 years of experience in the financial sector — joins from Lloyds Banking Group, where he spent the past 20 years focusing on corporate and leveraged finance transactions.

He brings with him an extensive network of contacts in the professional and business communities across the West and East Midlands.

“We are delighted to have Paul on board to enhance our UK origination platform,” said Paul Shea, managing partner at Beechbrook.

“The Midlands represents an important market for Beechbrook thanks to the large opportunity set, and we look forward to developing new and existing relationships across the region.”

The specialist private debt fund manager has also completed an investment — consisting of a senior secured loan and equity co-investment — in powered and non-powered golf trolleys suppliers Motocaddy to support the £22m buyout by Ethos Partners.

Julian Carr, co-founder of Ethos Partners, added: “[Beechbrook was] able to quickly understand the business and our plans for the future.

“Having worked together previously, we knew we could rely on [its] pragmatic approach, not only during the execution phase, but also throughout our ownership.”
