Andy Leach

Investment Partner

I joined NVM in 2013 and head up investment activity across the North West whilst currently representing NVM on the boards of Entertainment Magpie Group, Sorted Holdings and Thyson Group.

I started my career with Coopers & Lybrand in London where I qualified as a Chartered Accountant (ICAEW ACA)

Having been active in the North West Private Equity community since 1992, I really enjoy operating in such a relationship-oriented market, which allows you to build enduring connections with the region’s people and businesses.  We work with businesses in a range of sectors, of varying scale, at differing stages of development, with different management dynamics, employing a wide range of strategies and facing completely different challenges.  No day is the same and most opportunities have an element of uniqueness about them.

Outside of work I enjoy sports, particularly rugby.  Although no longer playing, I remain heavily involved in the sport through Lymm Rugby Club, where I first played as a 14 year-old. I have recently stepped down as Chairman of Mini, Junior & Colts Rugby after 10 years in the role but remain a member of the management committee and involved in our ambitious development plans.
