Rutland Expands Deal Team

Rutland is delighted to announce the expansion of their Deal Team with the appointments of Investment Executives, Matthew Hamilton and Jason Birt.

Matthew, a graduate from Durham University with an undergraduate degree in Economics and a Masters in Finance from Durham University Business School, joins Rutland following four years at Hawkpoint Partners. He worked within the Corporate Advisory group working mainly on Private Equity backed buy-side and sell-side transactions and has experience across a range of sectors including Healthcare, FIG, Support Services, Consumer Retail and CleanTech.

Jason has a degree in Economics from the University of Warwick and joins Rutland from Rothschild where he worked on a number of transactions and strategic reviews within the Consumer, Retail & Leisure team. Prior to Rothschild Jason spent four years with Ernst & Young within the Corporate Finance team where he qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 2012. During his time at Ernst & Young Jason worked across a range of teams including Corporate Restructuring, Transaction Support and Valuations & Business Modelling.

Both Matthew and Jason will be involved in sourcing, evaluating and executing transactions. Their appointments expand the Rutland team of investment professionals to 14 whose principal focus continues to concentrate on special situations and operational change with the primary objective to improve performance through controllable or strategic actions.

Michael Langdon, Chairman of Rutland Partners, comments:

Both Matthew and Jason are a welcome addition to Rutland. Their valuable transaction experience will be a great asset to the Deal Team complementing both our existing portfolio and deal origination.”
