As the head of our consumer and food and beverage industry groups, I spend a great deal of time speaking with businesses across the sector, understanding their requirements and supporting their strategic ambitions. I specialise in advising on M&A transactions and supporting businesses throughout their life cycle.
I am a corporate financier with over 20 years’ experience and have spent most of that time advising clients on mergers and acquisitions, company sales, MBOs and fundraisings.
I consider myself fortunate to lead and work with colleagues from all parts of our business to provide solutions to an ever-growing number of businesses from across the whole supply chain, including agricultural producers, food and beverage manufacturers, grocery retailers, bars and restaurants and other consumer businesses. Working with a wide range of businesses from growing owner-managed to FTSE 350 companies, as well as several private equity backed businesses, both in the UK and internationally.
I really enjoy working with our clients and finding solutions to help them grow their businesses and am lucky to have so many excellent colleagues who provide different services that aid growth. The acid test for a corporate finance adviser is being engaged with the same client more than once and I am happy to say that I have scored well in that area over the years and focus on ensuring that remains the case.
In my spare time, I enjoy and am interested in food and drink (fortunately for my sector focus), as well as watching and playing sport.
