November 2018: Board Appointments

Manolete Partners Plc is delighted to announce some recent new appointments to the Board.

The Manolete Board now includes five members, comprised of two Executive Directors, Steven Cooklin and Patrick Lineen and three independent Non-Executive Directors, Dr Stephen Baister, Lee Manning and Peter Bertram who will act as Non-Executive Chairman.

Chief Executive, Steven Cooklin said, “It’s been an extremely busy and successful year for us. Our success is deeply rooted in the high quality of our staff both operationally and at Board level. It is very gratifying to be able to strengthen our Board with additional skills and this degree of qualification and experience.

“Peter Bertram is widely recognised as an extremely experienced Chairman. Lee Manning worked for Deloitte for many years and in the insolvency and recovery sector since 1989. Patrick Lineen joined Manolete in May and has immediately shown his strong financial acumen. I am very pleased to have Dr Stephen Baister join the Board given the extraordinary knowledge of the insolvency sector he gained as a Judge from 1996 until his retirement in 2017.

“We are investing in a record number of cases currently and the new Board members will be lending their considerable support and advice on our successful business strategy into the future.”

2) Manolete has completed investments in over 250 specialist insolvency cases completing 170. The Manolete approach is to either buy claims outright or fund Insolvency Practitioners to pursue claims, paying an amount in cash upfront, taking a share of the net proceeds but transferring all risk to us. Manolete does not use ATE – it self-insures the adverse cost risk so enabling maximum returns to Creditor Estates.

3) Manolete has worked with over 280 different Insolvency Practitioner firms across the UK. IPs use their choice of solicitor and forms a three-way partnership to achieve efficient returns for creditor estates.
