Grant Thornton boosts Corporate Finance team with appointment of technology expert

14 May 2012 – 

Grant Thornton has appointed Andy Morgan as a partner in its London Corporate Finance team to help accelerate the growth of the business and strengthen the Firm’s technology expertise.

Andy has over 17 years' experience in mid-market M&A and joins from PwC where he led their UK TMT sector team. He has a strong track record advising private and public companies and private equity investors, in both domestic and cross-border deals, having led transactions worth in excess of £1.5bn over the last 10 years.

Grant Thornton’s technology practice has national strength and international reach, but with a local presence and specialists operating from key centres across the UK. The Firm has a track record of working with successful technology companies at all stages of their lifecycle.

Stephen Baker, Head of Corporate Finance in London at Grant Thornton said: "Andy is a welcome addition to what is already a successful team. His appointment reflects our ambition and confidence in the growth opportunity for us in the mid-market deals environment, and the TMT sector specifically. He has extensive experience advising on mid-market technology deals and I am very excited about what he is bringing to Grant Thornton which will help us develop the team and our presence in the market."

Andy Morgan said: "Now is a great time to be joining Grant Thornton. The technology sector has been at the forefront of the recovery in deal activity in the UK, and is predominantly mid-market.  This creates a tremendous opportunity for Grant Thornton to build on its existing focus on this segment of the market, its strength of team and track record as activity continues to pick up over the medium term. I am delighted to be joining and look forward to helping to build the business significantly over the coming years."

Andy will be based in London at Grant Thornton’s offices in Finsbury Square.
