Services

John became head of legacy Pitmans’ corporate department in 2000, leading M&A transactions, IPOs, private equity investments and setting up a banking department. In 2007, while remaining a partner, he set up a private equity fund with clients of the firm, investing in oil and gas technology companies. In 2011 he became managing partner of the fund.

In 2015 he returned to legacy Pitmans as managing partner and has continued in that capacity through to the firm’s merger with Bircham Dyson Bell (BDB) in December 2018. Following the merger John remains on the BDB Pitmans Executive Board and is an active partner in the corporate department.

John is a non-executive director and investor in several technology companies and has been chairman of a medical devices company.

He remains fundamentally curious about businesses and has enormous enthusiasm for working with business founders and entrepreneurs.
