PwC has strengthened its local East Midlands deals team with two senior promotions.
The professional services firm, based in Castle Donington, has promoted Simon White to director of transaction services and welcomes new corporate finance partner Sarah Taylor.
White has worked for PwC in the East Midlands for 13 years, providing transaction services support to a range of private businesses in the region.
Taylor has worked for PwC in the Midlands for over 20 years, providing corporate finance advice to a broad range of both corporate and private equity clients including Riviera Travel and Breedon Holdings. In her new role as partner, she will specialise in advising companies and shareholders on mergers and acquisitions and finance raising across the East and West Midlands regions.
In addition to the above promotions, PwC has also increased senior resource in the East Midlands Deals team through the recent recruitment of Paul Kithoray into transaction services.
Matt Tombs, lead deals partner at PwC in the East Midlands, said: “I’m delighted to announce these new promotions in our East Midlands deals team. This greater dedicated resource in the region reflects the heightened levels of activity we are seeing in the local deals market.
“Over the past 12 months, we’ve supported private businesses of all sizes, and listed companies, in landmark deals across a variety of industries, including packaging, IT, automotive manufacturing and construction materials.
“These recent promotions mean that we are able to continue to use our local deal team expertise to provide a full range of services to the regional business community, including specialist advice in corporate finance, pensions, tax and accounting structuring, and due diligence”.
