Neil Pitcher - Palatine Growth Credit

Neil Pitcher

Non-Executive Chair

Having worked in the technology and innovation sector in the UK (and further afield) for more than 30 years I still get a real buzz from working with young, fast-growing companies from a variety of exciting industry sectors.

Technology is now a mainstream industrial sector in its own right and as chair of the Palatine Growth Credit strategy credit committee I’m in a privileged position to see exciting opportunities and to try and support ambitious entrepreneurs grow and develop their businesses. Looking to support companies in the UK regions is extremely important and in my own small way I hope to be able to contribute in the development of a vibrate and successful regional technology focused ecosystem.

Having previously been CEO of two highly successful European focused venture/growth debt funds I am the co-founder of a successful debt advisory boutique (LGF Partners) focussed on raising debt funding for fast growth businesses across the UK, Ireland, mainland Europe and Australia. This gives me an excellent insight in trends in our target marketplace which I believe will help the Palatine Growth Credit strategy.

I’m genuinely very excited (and feel privileged) to have been asked by Will and the rest of the Palatine team to get involved in the Growth Credit strategy.

Outside of work I’m a keen rugby fan (England, Bath and Kingsbridge), follow Wigan Athletic, enjoy hill walking, sea kayaking and obviously eating cakes and pies!
