Dow Schofield Watts has made two new appointments to its corporate finance team in Yorkshire & the North East in response to a high level of new deal activity.
Matt spent six years at EY advising clients ranging from FTSE 100 businesses and multinational groups to private mid-market companies across sectors including manufacturing, real estate and renewable energy.
Jonathan, who holds a 1st class honours degree in Business Management with Finance, worked with a wide range of regional businesses during his three years at EY. He previously worked in Treasury for a private-equity backed mortgage lender and gained experience working on various debt issuances.
The team is led by Roger Esler and Paul Herriott. Roger Esler commented: “Regional businesses are enjoying an environment where most have several strategic options available to them. This is driving high levels of deal activity across the M&A, private equity and debt markets and the demand for objective corporate finance advice to appraise the alternative routes and to execute the best option. Our specialist team is growing accordingly.”
