Darren Bear

Partner, Head of Deals and Business Consulting

I joined our corporate finance team in April 2005, having spent the previous five years at one of the Big 4 and Aviva Plc working on M&A transactions predominantly across the industrials and packaging sectors and latterly financial services. Deal sizes ranged from £5 million to in excess of £1 billion.

Within my role, I have concentrated on mid-market corporate finance, primarily working on deal sizes of £10 million to £150 million. Whilst covering a broad number of sectors, I have focussed on the TMT and Industrials including packaging, recycling and food.

Having been a partner since 2011, I now sit on our Strategic Leadership Team and lead our national deals and business consulting service line, whilst also retaining a market role delivering corporate finance advice.

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.
