The Dow Schofield Watts team in Yorkshire & the North East were presented with the Corporate Finance Advisory Team of the Year award at the Insider Dealmakers Awards held on 21st November at New Dock Hall, Leeds.

The team are now the reigning Yorkshire Financial Awards Corporate Finance Team, Yorkshire Accountancy Awards Corporate Finance Team and the Insider Yorkshire Corporate Finance Advisory Team, all of 2019.

The accolade follows a very busy period for the team, led by Roger Esler and Paul Herriott, which had numerous deals shortlisted for awards across the various categories.

They include the investment in Helix Tool Company by MRO+ Solutions and Cairngorm Capital Partners; the BIMBO of Star Brands funded by Mobeus, and Operam Education Group’s acquisitions of Teachers UK and The Education Specialists following investment from BGF; and the £60m investment in AFI-Uplift and simultaneous acquisition of Facelift (GB) by Pricoa Private Capital and exit by Rutland Partners.

The Yorkshire & North East team is going into 2020 with an immensely strong pipeline of transactions, reflecting strong trade buyer, private equity and lending appetite across a range of sectors.
