We are delighted to have advised on Eton Bridge Partners Limited on their sale of a majority stake to Elysian Capital LP.

Eton Bridge is a leading specialist executive talent solutions consultancy, advising across the breadth of corporate leadership.

Led by founder and managing partner, Ashton Ward, Eton Bridge has grown rapidly since inception and developed specialist practices across business transformation, finance, HR and board. Eton Bridge is ranked the #1 provider of executive interims in the IIM Survey in 2021.

We worked closely with the shareholders to assess the strategic options available and tailor the appropriate solution. This included leading discussions with interested parties to evaluate their strategic and financial rationale, and then negotiating the right transaction structure.

Having advised on a number of transactions in the human capital space and with our extensive experience in private equity transactions, we were able to bring a unique understanding of the investor landscape across the national and international markets.

This allowed us to actively partner Eton Bridge with Elysian Capital to deliver a value enhancing transaction with all members of the management team continuing with the business to deliver the growth and expansion plan which will see Eton Bridge double its consultant headcount and maintain its market leading position.

We executed a streamlined preparation process including project managing a full suite of due diligence and buy-side debt advisory services.

Having met many of the top Human Capital M&A advisors, Grant Thornton were the right fit for our business. They understood our needs, culture and values. Straight talking and balanced, with a distinct human touch. Thank you!
