Hentons New Appointment Is Sign of Thriving Market

A still-thriving mergers and acquisitions (M&A) market has led to the fast-growing Hentons Corporate Finance strengthening its team again.

Hentons Corporate Finance  which works across offices in Doncaster, Sheffield, Leeds, York Thirsk and London  has expanded rapidly over the past 12 months. As such, Director of Corporate Finance, Chris Sellars, believes that there are reasons to be positive across a variety of sectors in the economy.

He said: “We have added to our team with the appointment of James Pridmore as a corporate finance executive, which brings us to a total of eight, doubling our size from 12 months ago.”

“At the moment there seems to be no slowing down in the M&A market as the after-effects of Covid continue.”

“There are still strong forces on both the supply and demand side, as business owners assess their lifestyle choices [while] venture capitalists and private equity funders look to invest their built-up reserves.”

“James brings with him experience in this area from a Top 10 accountancy firm and he’ll add a vital extra resource to our team as we look to continue our growth through the rest of the year and into 2023.”

James, from Nottingham, will be based in the firm’s Sheffield office. About his recent appointment, he said: “It’s exciting to move to a company which has ambitious plans. I’ll be part of a really busy team which is going from strength-to-strength.

“As a corporate finance executive my main roles will be across due diligence, company research and managing projects.”

Hentons Corporate Finance, which includes its own in-house corporate services legal team, is a joint venture with Hentons Chartered Accountants who employ 145 people across seven offices in Doncaster, Sheffield, Leeds, York, Hertford, Thirsk and London.
