Fitzpatricks appoints new CFO

Fitzpatricks Group has appointed Jodie Blackledge in a dual chief financial officer/chief operating officer role.

Ms Blackledge’s appointment follows a leadership shake-up in June 2018 and an August 2017 private equity play for Fitzpatricks by Quadrant Private Equity and Yorkway Capital Partners.

In her new role, Ms Blackledge will have a major focus on business growth of the firm via acquisitions, said Fitzpatricks chief executive John McMurdo.

“I am delighted that Jodie has joined our group and I know her significant experience in mergers and acquisitions will be of great benefit to our group,” Mr McMurdo said.


“As a firm we continue to find and execute on a range of excellent acquisitions and growth opportunities.

"The input of private capital has provided major funding for the group and we continue to be approached by a number of like-minded and high-calibre firms to partner with us.

"Jodie has had an outstanding career in finance, M&A, investment banking, strategy and governance, with substantial groups including Bank of America, Merrill Lynch and Citigroup."
