Commenting on the appointment, Tim said:
“After 11 years as CEO, it is time to ensure that the business continues to grow and evolve. Patric’s appointment will allow a smooth transition in leadership and I am very much looking forward to working with him as he develops his plans for taking the business to the next level.”
Patric joins N+1 Singer as the business comes to the end of a successful year, during which it has raised over £655m for clients and retained its position as one of the leading Small and Mid-Cap broking businesses in the City of London, serving both corporate and institutional clients.
