TDC makes trio of senior team appointments to support growth


TDC has made three new appointments to support its ambitious growth plans.

Rob Hanley joins as investment director and will help TDC’s portfolio companies to fulfil their strategic plans, support bolt on activity and use his credit skills to identify new investment opportunities for the firm.

Rob has over 14 years’ experience across debt advisory, restructuring and corporate banking having worked in both the London and Manchester markets. Prior to TDC, Rob gained significant experience at international management consulting firm AlixPartners, working on several high profile financial and operational restructuring assignments across a broad range of sectors and geographies.

Rob moved to Manchester to join Grant Thornton’s Advisory and Restructuring team to focus on SMEs and mid-market corporates and latterly spent two years at HSBC as a relationship director. As part of these roles, Rob has led many transactions in the mid-market space, working with business owners, financial institutions, and private equity houses to deliver debt led solutions to support stakeholders.

Meanwhile, Tom Scatchard and India Kendrick have also joined the team as portfolio executives. Joining from BDO, Tom and India both have backgrounds in transaction services and audit. They will work on expanding TDC’s portfolio of investments, which typically comprise lower mid-market deals ranging from £10-30m and supporting new deal underwriting.

These hires further strengthen TDC’s investment and portfolio capabilities, and follow the appointment of Mat Deering who joined as a partner in April 2021.

Richard Williams, partner at TDC, said:

“We have known Rob for a number of years and believe he will be a great addition to our team, bringing exceptional experience in the debt markets across the full range of transactional scenarios. We’re also delighted to have Tom and India on board to diversify the skillsets in our portfolio team and add more flexibility to our investment resource. Having deployed £150m of investment in 2021 in UK mid-market deals, we aim to accelerate that growth during 2022 and the ongoing expansion of the TDC team will be a key enabler.”
