I lead the corporate finance team in the south-west and Wales, and the national healthcare corporate finance team. I have more than 15 years of corporate finance experience, specialising in strategic advice, disposals, MBOs, MBIs and fund raising.
Recent deals include the £117 million sale of Watson Petroleum to World Fuels Services Corp – for 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 the sale of Nurse Plus to Sovereign Capital, the 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 was 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 – 400 miles in four days – raising money for the Royal British Legion. I am also a trustee of Dame Violet Willis Will Trust.
