Partner, Corporate Finance Advisory

Jim Whittaker

I lead our corporate finance team in Yorkshire and the North East and have been advising public and private companies, private equity houses and management teams for over 25 years.

I advise on the full spectrum of corporate finance transactions, including management buy-outs, company disposals, acquisitions and fundraisings.

Over the years, I have worked with businesses across most sectors, particularly consumer and TMT, and I have extensive experience of working on complex private equity transactions. For me, it is all about working with people and helping businesses and management teams realise their strategic goals and ambitions. I like to think that clients choose to work with me because I give honest, independent advice backed up by many years of experience.

Recent deals I have advised on include:

  • Sale of Brocklesby to St1 Nordic Oy
  • LDC’s investment in Cleveland Containers
  • Sale of DAM Structures to Severfield plc
  • LDC’s investment in IEG4
  • Sale of Fultons Foods to Poundland

Outside of the office, I am passionate (sorry, obsessive!) about running, having run multiple marathons for charity.

  • CF
  • FCA
  • MBA
  • MEng, Manufacture & Management
