FW Capital appoints investment executive
FW Capital has strengthened its North East team after appointing the NEL Fund Managers' ex-finance director as its new investment executive.
Keith Charlton, a qualified chartered accountant, will make investment from the North East Growth plus Fund, which FW Capital has managed since 2010.
Newcastle-based Charlton will now work closely with Michael Vassallo who has recently been promoted to senior investment executive.
Charlton said he is joining the company at an "exciting time" and will "ensure even more businesses make the most of the funding and expertise on offer from FW Capital".
Fund manager Joanne Pratt added: "Keith is an important addition to the team. He has an impressive track record and brings a valuable blend of expertise and experience gained from having worked in investment as well as for businesses that have secured investment.
"He's also well-networked in the finance and business community locally."
FW Capital's recent investment in Pacifica Group was its 650th.
