Whilst he will remain a partner at UNW for the majority of his time, Neville Bearpark has taken up an offer to join our client Orchidsoft Limited as part time Finance Director.

Corporate Finance partner Neville, who has a superb reputation for his expertise around grants and is a recognised expert on government funding, has led UNW’s Grants team for over a decade. His new role won’t impact on his UNW commitments and he will spread his time between UNW and Orchidsoft.

Orchidsoft are a developer of corporate intranet solutions, and provide UNW with our own intranet services.

Neville said: “Whilst I remain thoroughly committed to UNW going forward, this is a great opportunity to take on a new challenge in a very different sector. I will utilise my funding knowledge and experience to help steer an ambitious high growth tech business on the next stage of its journey.”
