Darren Bear Partner, Corporate Finance Cambridge +44 (0)1223 225 673

I am an experienced adviser having focused on M&A since 2000. I spend my time advising owner-managed businesses, large corporates and entrepreneurs to develop their strategy – including exits, acquisitions, MBOs and raising of new funds. I also spent two years at Aviva plc within its M&A team, completing more than 20 deals in this short period, gaining great insight into corporate life and working within a plc.

Today, in addition to a 35 strong market-leading advisory business, I am the regional managing partner for the central region which includes eight offices located in Cambridge, Norwich, Ipswich, Chelmsford, Milton Keynes, St Albans, Northampton and Leicester.

As well as leading advisory transactions and management, my true passion is working with clients to help them grow and connecting them to similar organisations across our network in the UK and internationally.

Outside of work I have a busy family life, enjoy a game of golf and am a long term sufferer as a Norwich City football fan.
