What I do

As a associate in the Corporate Finance team, I specialise in advising clients on completing corporate transactions. We specialise in strategic advice, business disposals, acquisitions and buy-out transactions with an enterprise value between £1m and £50m.

Where I've been

I joined HURST in 2012 after spending time at both BTG and the Corporate Finance department of Ernst Young, London. There’s a much greater sense of reward advising entrepreneurial clients as opposed to corporate clients.

What I've learned

At HURST I've learnt that advising entrepreneurial clients is more multifaceted, as entrepreneurial clients are far more emotionally involved in their Business.

Why we're unlike any other accountant

Hurst are unlike other regional accountants. We act as trusted business advisers and partner with clients to add genuine value to their business.
