Ryan Sorby - Palatine Growth Credit

Ryan Sorby

Partner and Head of the North


I’m a big believer in the potential of the UK SME market, having worked with these businesses for over 25 years. There is so much variety not only in the market segments, product offerings, strategies, and delivery, but in the people you meet from the board room to the shop floor. This is what I have always found most fulfilling. Meeting a business for the first time, hearing the ideas for growth and working with all the stakeholders to create a plan to execute, and ultimately fund that strategy is a good day in the office for me.

When not in the office I’m happiest with my wife and two daughters finding somewhere new to explore, often in the Peak District, finishing off with some fish and chips, or if I’m lucky a roast and a beer in a nice country pub. I love all sport, watching but especially playing and I’m still turning out on a Sunday morning for my local football team, which is a great for the mind, keeps me fit (well fitter than I would be!) and is the perfect start to the week.
