Winch & Co welcome Debra Hart to the management team as Commercial Director

Winch & Co, a boutique private equity firm based in the centre of Leeds, is proud to
welcome Debra Hart as our new commercial director. She is a driven, dynamic manager with
demonstrable experience in a range of industries – working closely with the sales functions
across the Winch & Co portfolio to improve top line sales growth.

Debra has had a colourful and varied career so far, working in the transport, haulage and other asset-heavy sectors – most
notably as commercial director at PallEx, as well as experience in marketing and managing angel
investments for a former ‘dragon’, Hilary Devey on Dragons’ Den. She will be warmly welcomed
to the management team.

Winch & Co acquires companies across various sectors building groups that it can consolidate
and add value to through economies of scale and buying power.
Managing Partner, Nathan Winch, said “Debra’s attitude to work is amazing, so is her ability to
connect and network with others. We haven’t met a more hard-working individual who really
does care about the success of whatever she works on, as well as the other stakeholders involved.
She’s a confident but modest person who hasn’t been given the scope to flourish.

We are lookingforward to working with Debra and giving her the platform and resources for her to excel.”
Operations Director, Shaun Swinburn, added “Debra is the missing piece of the puzzle for our
company. With our transport, haulage and waste management investment mandate for 2022-23,
coupled with Debra’s extensive experience, we are set now to continue our acquisition strategy at
pace.”Commercial Director, Debra Hart, finished “I am delighted to work with such a cracking team.
We will refine the strategy together and optimise our investment plan for the next 18 months.”
