Shaw & Co, the specialist corporate finance advisory firm, has appointed Marcus Harrison as an Executive in its Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) division.
Marcus joins the company from Saffery Champness LLP, one of the UK’s oldest accountancy firms, where he was an auditor responsible for SME audits across a range of industries, business valuations, and non-audit assurance engagements including independent examinations of charities and Solicitors Regulation Authority compliance reviews.
With over four years’ experience in financial services, Marcus will support Shaw & Co’s M&A division which offers expert advice on all aspects of buying and selling a business including management buy-outs, management buy-ins, mergers, exit strategies and business valuations. The division has worked on a number of notable deals including the sale of Pukka Herbs to Unilever, the purchase of VoucherCloud from Vodafone and its subsequent sale to Groupon, and the sale of GoProposal to Sage.
A qualified chartered accountant, with experience in financial due diligence and business sales, Marcus’s specific role will comprise the preparation of investment papers; reviewing and building accompanying financial models; and conducting market research to identify buyers, sellers and comparable transactions.
Rob Starr, Head of M&A, Shaw & Co, said: “Marcus is another great addition to our rapidly growing team. He will have a key role to play in supporting our strategy to really transform the quality of corporate advisory services being offered to SME owners across the UK who are looking to buy, sell or fund the growth of their business.”
