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 Empresaria’s UK businesses, Nick played a major part in its 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 and revenues of over £200m. He was instrumental in a large number of business acquisitions and disposals, the initial AIM IPO and subsequent fundraising before leading the successful MBO of The Logistics Partnership from Empresaria in 2011.

Nick currently divides his time between The Logistics Partnership and Orchard Joint Ventures, fulfilling the role of CFO for both companies, as well as providing operational and non-executive support.
