Deloitte has appointed a deputy director to support its corporate finance advisory team in the Midlands.
Natalie Morgan has a business development background in the legal and private equity industries.
Prior to joining Deloitte, Morgan was responsible for origination at Eversheds Sutherland, and most recently the business development team at PwC.
She said: I am thrilled to be part of one of the region’s most highly regarded M&A teams in the Midlands. The team have completed some of the most high-profile transactions in the region and, in my new role, I look forward to bringing their expertise to more businesses here in the Midlands.
“Having previously worked on a national mandate, I am looking forward to returning to the Midlands market. There is so much potential here in the Midlands, with organizations that have the ability to make an impact on the global stage.”
The team also hired Raman Aujla as assistant manager and hired Rick Hallsworth as manager.
The appointments come as Deloitte expands its financial advisory team in the Midlands after a strong 2021, with closed deals totaling over £1bn.
Darren Boocock, Partner in the Midlands M&A team, said: “The appointments of Natalie, Raman and Rick reflect our ambition to build on an exceptional trading year in 2021.
“We have been very successful, having completed high profile transactions including the sale of a majority stake in critical security services provider Orbis Protect to growth investor Synova and the sale of a minority stake in Sygature Discovery at Five Arrows Principal Investments.
“We also oversaw the refinancing of Breedon Group’s credit facilities and the recent tertiary buyout of CARE Fertility by private lender Nordic Capital.”
“Levels of M&A activity remain high, across a range of industries, including in key areas for us such as business services, healthcare and technology. We are delighted to welcome new members of our team at such an exciting time for the region, as we seek to reach even greater heights in 2022.”
