UK growth capital firm Panoramic Growth Equity (PGE) has hired former Business Growth Fund (BGF) executive Jane Reoch as a senior investment manager.
Reoch has ten years private equity and corporate finance experience and joins from the newly created BGF. She has also worked in transaction advisory for PwC and was involved in establishing the Cass Entrepreneurship Fund. She now specialises in smaller company growth capital financing.
Reoch will be responsible for expanding PGE’s reach into the south alongside David Wilson who, as part of this expansion, becomes PGE’s partner responsible for London and the South East.
David Wilson, a partner at PGE, said, “We have known Jane for a number of years and are delighted to welcome her to the team at Panoramic. She brings a huge amount of relevant investment experience as well as a good understanding of the market’s current needs. She is ideally placed to identify and assess investment prospects for our Panoramic ECF 1 fund.”
PGE completed its latest investment from the £34m Fund in November last year, committing £1m in development capital to Concorde Solutions, an IT asset management company in the Thames Valley.
The fund, which will make individual investments between £0.5m and £2m, was established to help meet the demand by SMEs for growth capital, at a time when supply in the equity gap has come under considerable pressure, the firm said in a statement.
