AAccounting and business advisory firm HURST has bolstered its corporate finance team with three additional staff to meet demand as activity levels in the deal market continue to rise.
The trio’s arrival comes at the end of a year in which HURST Corporate Finance advised on a record 14 closed transactions, including acquisitions, divestitures and fundraisings for companies in various sectors, with a growing focus on health-related transactions.
Max Perry joined HURST Corporate Finance as an associate director of Camlee Group, a mergers and acquisitions advisory firm where he spent more than five years after leaving Deloitte.
Danielle Tierney has joined EY as Head of Corporate Finance. Danielle spent over three years at EY working with a range of FTSE listed, private and international clients on a variety of engagements.
The third addition to HURST Corporate Finance is Matthew Taylor, who joined as a graduate trainee. He holds an MSc in Mathematics from the University of Leeds.
Nigel Barratt, Head of HURST Corporate Finance, said: “It’s great to welcome Max, Danielle and Matt to the team. We’ve built on the strength of the team as we continue to see strong activity, and our average deal size is growing, so deals are getting more complex.
“Our pipeline for 2022 is very strong and includes a range of deals involving UK and overseas buyers, as well as private equity deals. We’re also going to be busy leading up to Christmas.
Max said: “I am absolutely delighted to have joined a team with such a proud track record of working on high quality deals, which has rightfully earned them a fantastic reputation in the market.
“It became clear in the first two weeks that HURST has a culture that places personal development at the heart of its concerns, which was extremely important to me. I look forward to a long career here alongside exceptional people for advising on some of the best transactions in the region.
