Mark Naughton (Head of Corporate Finance South West and Wales )

I lead the Corporate Finance team South West and Wales and the National Healthcare Corporate Finance team.  I have over 15 years of Corporate Finance experience, specialising  in strategic advice, disposals, MBO's, MBI's and fund raising.

Recent deals include the £117 million sale of Watson Petroleum to World Fuels Services Corp. which we were awarded 'Deal of the Year' at the South West Insider Dealmakers Awards 2014 and the Private Equity investment in Advanced Insulation plc by GCP. Recent Healthcare transactions include sale of Nurse Plus to Sovereign Capital, sale of Leonard Lang to DCC Plc and the MBO of Mangar International.

In 2014 I was awarded the prestigious 'Dealmaker of the Year' title at the South West Insider Dealmaker Awards.  My team were also honoured to receive the title of 'Corporate Finance Advisory Team of the Year'.

Outside of work, I am married to Catherine and have two young children, who keep me fully occupied!  I am a keen cyclist and in 2014 I cycled from Bristol to Bruges – 4oo miles in 4 days raising money for the Royal British Legion. I am also a Trustee of Dame Violet Willis Will Trust.
