Deloitte’s South West dealmakers scoop two top awards

Awards success for the region’s M&A team

September 2021

Dealmakers from Deloitte’s advisory corporate finance team have won two top awards at Insider’s South West Dealmakers Awards 2021.

Working with businesses across the South West, Deloitte’s M&A team had an exceptional start to the year advising on some of the region’s most iconic deals, and took home the prestigious Corporate Finance Advisory Team of the Year award alongside the Emerging Dealmaker of the Year which was presented to associate director, Richard Williams.

The awards celebrate the achievement of the corporate finance community across the South West and recognise the top sales, acquisitions, buyouts and funding deals over the past 12 months, and the dealmakers that made them happen.

Providing sell-side and buy-side advice, as well as management advisory services to management teams across the South West and nationally, our team has completed 12 deals so far this year, spanning a variety of sectors including automotive, retail, industrial, life sciences and healthcare, food and beverage and consumer products.

Shortlisted for a total of seven awards, the team played an integral role in the refinancing of Clarks to Hong Kong-based LionRock Capital, as well as advising the management team at Adey on its £210m sale to Polypipe Group Plc and the sale of Western Global to MML Capital Partners. All of these deals were shortlisted in this year’s Deal of the Year category.

Commenting on the awards win, Martyn Gregory, lead partner for Deloitte South & Wales M&A, said: “The depth and breadth of experience within our corporate financial advisory team is phenomenal and the awards are testament to not just the talent we have in the region, but also the relationships we have built with our clients.

“Many of the deals completed this year have either come through recommendations from advisors and colleagues or through long-standing client relationships, which we are extremely proud of.

To win two awards is fantastic, but to win two awards that focus on both individual and team talent is really exciting and great recognition for the outstanding contribution and effort made by everyone in the team over the last year and affirms our team’s strong reputation for dealmaking in the South West.

“I am thrilled for each and every member of the team, especially Richard on being named emerging dealmaker, a well-deserved accolade for his role in advising on many of our top deals in the South West.”
