Stephen Baker Partner London Finsbury Square +44 (0)20 7728 3100

As Head of M&A at Grant Thornton International, I work with the global leadership team and Grant Thornton member firms around the world in pursuing inorganic growth strategies for the network to increase its capabilities and coverage in key locations, service lines and industries.

Before taking up my current role, I led the London Corporate Finance Advisory team, advising both public and private companies on the development and implementation of strategies for increasing and realising shareholder value through M&A and similar transactions both domestically and internationally.

In my earlier years I was one of the team responsible for the development of our UK Corporate Finance practice, having spent two years working in California during the formative years of Silicon Valley and amid the emergence of private equity and venture capital as a source of finance.

I am married to Marite, have two grown up children pursuing careers in marketing and finance, and am enjoying the opportunity to travel and absorb new cultures as well as time at home relaxing.
