I have specialised in Corporate Finance for the last 25 years. My primary experience is in selling privately owned businesses, usually with a value between £5m and £100m.
In the last 18 months I've led the £16m sale of private equity owned Youngman Group to a large US corporate, Werner Inc, the MBO of retail intelligence specialist Springboard, the £25m sale of packaging specialist CRP to Smurfit Kappa, the sale of high acuity healthcare provider Kingly Care to Active Assistance and the £16m sale of automotive business IM Kelly to Belgium based ECA NV. I've also sold businesses to Japanese, German and North American buyers.
In October 2014 I was voted Dealmaker of the Year at the Insider Central & Eastern Dealmakers awards and our local team won Corporate Finance Team of the Year. I am also the International Service Line leader for Grant Thornton's International M&A business and have strong relationships with our M&A teams throughout the world.
Although work keeps me busy, I also play various sports and I’m currently captain of our local cricket team.
