Doug Bentley

I advise owner managed businesses, large corporates and entrepreneurs on their strategy. This has included advising on acquisitions, disposals, MBOs/MBIs and fund raising. In the last 2 years I have led the sale of Magdalene Holdings to private equity backed M Group, the sale of Alpha Scientific to private equity backed ADEY Innovation and the sale of Seetec Business Technology Centre to an Employee Ownership Trust. I have also sold businesses to Japanese, European and North American buyers.

My expertise includes:

  • Accelerated M&A
  • Corporate Finance
  • Raising Finance
  • Acquisitions
  • Private Equity
  • Buying a business and selling a business
  • Vendor due diligence

In November 2016, I was voted Young Dealmaker of the year at the Insider Central & Eastern Dealmaker awards. Additionally, our local team won corporate finance team of the year in 2018 for the fifth year in a row. 

Outside of work, I was a trustee at the Malcolm Whales Foundation and have captained Level 6, Huntingdon & District Rugby Club between 2012 and 2017.
