WHO WE ARE

RPL's core team works with an extensive list of experienced and trusted freelancers

Geoff Rampton
Founder director

Geoff has specialised in commercial due diligence since 1999. He is a Chartered Accountant by training, and has held a number of public company directorships, focusing on M&A.

 

In 2009, he established RPL along with fellow founding director, Roger Penney (ex-KPMG). Since then, RPL has completed over 200 transactions for private equity, corporate and banking clients.

 

Prior to RPL, he was MD at CIL, which for five years was a subsidiary of Ernst & Young. Under his leadership, Geoff personally led over 170 due diligence and strategy projects and oversaw a total of 750 projects.

 

His experience spans a wide number of market sectors, with specialist knowledge in media, consumer (retail and supply chain), business services, healthcare and technology. 

Geoff is currently non-executive director at green-tech firm, Nafici Environmental Research, and was non-executive director at audio-tech firm, Solid State Logic, until its sale to Ardian in 2019. He is also a private equity investor in his own right.

Suzy Urch
Assistant director

Suzy began her career in commercial due diligence as an Associate at RPL in 2017 training directly under founding directors Geoff Rampton and Roger Penney.

 

She joined Deloitte’s CDD team in 2019 as Assistant Manager working on several large scale deals. However, she came to realise that working closely with clients and management teams on low-mid market deals is where her interests really lie. This realisation led to her return to RPL as Assistant Director.

 

In total, Suzy has completed over 40 transactions across a wide range of sectors for private equity, corporate and banking clients.
