AMJPE recruits

Aberdeen Murray Johnstone Private Equity (AMJPE) has strengthened its deal origination resource with the appointment of Johnathan Massey as head of new business research based in its Manchester office.

Massey joins AMJPE from Armstrong Craven Limited where he has spent the last seven years as head of business information. There he was responsible for the development, growth and delivery of the business information service working for clients primarily in private equity and corporate finance.

Gary Tipper, head of investment, England, said: “Recent changes in the deal advisory markets have highlighted the importance of generating your own deal flow. To do this effectively needs a full time commitment and I believe that the combination of Johnathan’s experience in research and the strength of contacts we have through our regional network will allow us to achieve our aims.”
