Craig Richardson

Craig joined Dow Schofield Watts as a Partner in 2006. Prior to this he spent 14 years at KPMG, undertaking corporate finance and due diligence assignments in the UK and overseas after qualifying as a chartered accountant in 1992.

In the inaugural North West Insider awards, Craig was voted Corporate Finance Advisor of the Year and Dealmaker of the Year in Lancashire.

Craig sits on the board of six of PHD Equity Partners investments.

He has a background in advising SME owners and is therefore ideally placed to source and review potential new investments for the fund.  He has also lectured to leading banks on how to assess the competence of management teams which is invaluable in his role.
