Michael Reynolds joins Rutland Partners from Hawkpoint


UK turnaround specialist Rutland Partners has hired Michael Reynolds from Hawkpoint Partners as an investment executive.

Reynolds spent almost two years at Hawkpoint as an analyst and later as an associate, specialising in the healthcare and industrials sectors as well as providing debt restructuring advice.

The new hire brings Rutland’s investment team to 12.

Chairman Michael Langdon said, “Mike is a welcome addition to the team and has valuable transaction experience which will complement both our existing portfolio and deal origination.”

Earlier this year Rutland made a 3.3 times return on its investment in Attends Healthcare Group through a €180m sale to Domtar Corporation.

Rutland bought the company from 3i for €93.5m in 2007, and has invested more than €25m in support of the management’s restructuring plan and portfolio development.

The sale was Rutland’s first exit from its £320m second fund, which has made five more investments including tool and equipment rental business Brandon Hire and subsea technical analysis business GEMS International.

The firm currently has £530m committed across its two funds.
