Gresham Trust Opens in Manchester –

Gresham Trust, the U.K. mid-market buyout firm, will open an office in Manchester this fall on the back of the success of its Birmingham office, which opened two years ago and has already completed six deals. Simon Inchley will lead the Manchester-based team and will be joined by Tim Smallbone and Andy Tupholme, who are both new to the firm.

Smallbone joins from KPMG’s northern office where he was the director in charge of private equity services in Manchester and Leeds. Tupholme joins from PricewaterhouseCoopers‘ northern region where he was assistant director working on a range of buyouts, acquisitions and disposals.
