Nick Hall-Palmer

After qualifying as a Chartered Accountant, Nick worked in a variety of financial roles for FTSE companies before moving to the recruitment sector, joining Empresaria Group plc in 2000.

As Finance Director and later Head of the Group’s UK Businesses, Nick played a major part in the Group’s growth from a collection of UK recruitment businesses with sales of less than £10m to an AIM listed International recruitment Group with Operations in nearly 20 countries across 4 continents with revenues of over £200m. He played a major part in a large number of business acquisitions and disposals, the initial AIM IPO and a subsequent fundraising before leading the successful MBO of The Logistics Partnership from Empresaria.

Since the MBO in 2011, Nick has divided his time between The Logistics Partnership and Orchard Joint Ventures, fulfilling the role of CFO for the companies as well as providing operational and non-executive support to suit the needs of each business.
