New addition at Smith Cooper

The corporate finance division of accountancy and business advisory firm Smith Cooper has expanded its team with the appointment of Logan Mantle.

Logan joins Smith Cooper’s nine-strong Midlands based team, which specialises in providing owner-managed and mid-corporate businesses and investors with high-intensity project management of acquisitions, sales, fundraising, and other related services, typically in the £1million to £50million value range.

In the past year, the division has invested considerably in additional team members at all levels, reinforcing their presence in three main locations – Derby, Nottingham and Birmingham.

John Farnsworth, corporate finance partner, said: “We are delighted to welcome Logan to the team. He joins at a time of rapid growth for the corporate finance division and the wider firm; 2015 was another record year that saw us working on a range of high profile transactions and this is set to continue in 2016.

“During each of the past two years, the division completed over 25 transactions, further strengthening our position in the market, competing successfully with some of the country’s biggest firms. The improved deals market and our rapid growth has been matched with significant investment in new team members including Darren Hodson and Dan Bowtell at partner level, as well as Logan and Edward Wesson. We will continue investment in high calibre professionals.”

Logan added: “Apart from the reputation of the firm, what attracted me to Smith Cooper was the fact that their offering is different to that of many others in the market; whilst having a dedicated Corporate Finance team, the rest of the firm offers seamless multidisciplinary support throughout transactions which means our clients get an unrivalled service. I am excited to join such a highly regarded team of professionals and look forward to working on my first deals.”

Smith Cooper’s corporate finance team advises owner-managed and mid-corporate businesses, management teams and investors on sales, acquisitions, MBO and MBI transactions, funding, valuations and preparation for exit.

The team recently announced their 9th place position by deal volume in Experian’s UK Deal Review and Advisor League Table, the highest placed accountancy and advisory practice serving owner-managed businesses.
