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, Thyson Group, Secure Retail, King Construction and Mobius Networks.

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.
