We have welcomed a new Associate Partner to our Corporate Finance team

We are marking a successful year for Corporate Finance with the appointment of our new Associate Partner, Lee Humble.

Lee has 15 years of professional services, banking sector and Corporate Finance experience, having spent time in London and the North West. He brings experience as a finance director and business owner.

Lee will work closely with our Corporate Finance Partner, Steve Plaskitt, and the rest of the team, to provide transactional, strategy, growth and funding solutions to businesses across the region. The team will work with our newly established Data Insights team, to build on our existing service offering and help businesses use their data to drive strategy and value.

Lee said:

“I love the transactional environment of corporate finance and the varied experience that I have gained over the years plays well into this role. I’ve always been an admirer of MHA Tait Walker and I’m really excited to tap into the expertise they have here and the wider service offering across tax, accountancy and Wealth Management.”

2019 has been an award-winning year for our Corporate Finance team. Our recent work with the management buyout of Fabricom Offshore Services Limited achieved Deal of the Year at the Insider North East Dealmakers Awards and the team have completed a total of 11 deals across the year.

Michael Smith, winner of this year’s Insider’s Lifetime Achievement Award, will continue to support the Corporate Finance team with his 25 years of experience in the specialism. Michael will continue to strategically work with the team and our clients.

Steve Plaskitt said:

“It’s been a fantastic year for the corporate finance team and it’s been great to work with businesses across the region and help them to achieve their business and personal goals.  

“Moving into 2020, we’ll be working with our in-house data insights team even more to really help businesses to understand their financials, drive value and strengthen their business strategy.

“Graham Dotchin is head of our Data Insight team and when it comes to transactions or planning for future sale or growth, the team are focused on helping shareholders to increase value for every outcome. They also help clients to drive up things like profit ahead of fundraising, sale and other significant projects, as well as working on long term and short term business strategy”.
