ISIS Equity Partners is planning to open a new office in Leeds in the autumn. The team will be headed by Andy Lees, who joins after a three-year spell at Aberdeen Murray Johnstone’s Manchester office. Prior to this, he was a director of corporate finance at Ernst & Young, where he spent eight years advising on private equity transactions across the North of England.
Lees will be joined by James Hall from ISISEP’s Manchester office. Hall has nine years’ private equity experience; the majority of this time has been spent in the Leeds market.
