KCS Group Europe is pleased to announce that Jodi Bartin has joined the team as Non-Executive Director with immediate effect. Jodi is a respected corporate financier, with a high-profile reputation as a formidable corporate negotiator and technology expert. She started her career in London as an equity analyst, becoming a technology expert before tech was mainstream, and brought this experience to Baker Tilly (now RSM), as a Director of Corporate Finance.
Being an entrepreneur at heart, in 2006, Jodi joined Citicourt & Co as a Director and shareholder, where she was part of the team who completed several transactions providing advice, fundraising and M&A expertise.
During the financial crisis Jodi was a corporate broker / sales trader for a leading AIM broker where she spearheaded the tech team and helped to build it to be the leading small caps broker in London.
In 2018, Jodi led the MBO of Citicourt and is currently implementing a growth strategy for the firm and its related merchant banking initiatives including launching new Funds and a Property division.
Over the last 12-months, the team at KCS Group Europe has been working hard to focus on developing the service it offers to its clients which has seen the business go from strength to strength. In her role as Non-Executive Director, Jodi will work with the team to continue this journey and support the business in the next phase of its development and growth.
Commenting, Stuart Poole-Robb, CEO of KCS Group Europe said: “Strengthening our team has been a fundamental part of our business strategy. Our focus for stable growth continues to be to ensure we align the services we offer in the intelligence arena, where we have expert skills and see continued success, and that of our specialist cyber security team to the specific needs of our partners, clients and their customers.
“Jodi has an extensive global network in the UK, US and Asia and this, together with her proven reputation and experience in the business and finance sector, will be key as we continue to grow the business”.
Jodi’s appointment follows our announcement last month, that Steven Mills had joined the team as Chief Financial Officer. Recent appointments also include Chris Crowther who is a member of our newly formed advisory board and Nick Jordan’s appointment as Chief Technical Officer.
