Beechbrook Capital opens Manchester office and hires Matt Kenny as Investment Director
5th May 2017 - Beecbrook Capital is delighted to announce the opening of our first regional office in Manchester. The office, in Hardman Square, Spinningfields, will support the regional efforts of the UK SME Credit Fund, which provides finance to successful, growing UK SMEs. The Fund backs businesses with turnover of between £10m and £100m, and EBITDA of more than £1m.
The Manchester office will be run by Investment Director, Matt Kenny, who joined Beechbrook at the beginning of April.

We know there is strong demand for the growth capital we offer and the Manchester office will play a big role in expanding the range of high-quality investment opportunities available to the Fund."
