Ian Barton

Ian Barton, newly arrived finance partner at business advisory firm Quantuma, has advised on a major Midlands corporate finance deal.

Whistl, the leading delivery management company, has acquired Parcelhub and sister company Mail Workshop, who are based in Nottingham.

Ian Barton has a national remit within Quantuma to work alongside Mark Lucas and the Quantuma corporate finance team.

He said: “This was a fascinating deal to work on and I’m delighted to have supported Whistl through the complexities of getting this deal over the line. I worked with the team at Whistl when they underwent a management buyout in 2015 and this is second acquisition I have advised on with them since then. The company also acquired Prism DM in July 2017 as part of its growth strategy into the fulfilment market.
