BHP announces double deal advisory appointment

Will Sykes has joined the group’s M&A advisory team, while Mathew Oldfield has been appointed in the group’s transaction services division

BHP, a Chesterfield-based accountancy firm, has expanded its corporate finance division with a duo of appointments.

Will Sykes has joined the group’s M&A advisory team, while Mathew Oldfield has been appointed in the group’s transaction services division.

Both Sykes and Oldfield joined BHP following successful internships in 2018, training in the group’s audit team before joining their respective departments.

Martin Athey, partner of transaction services at BHP, said: “These recent recruits not only demonstrate BHP’s commitment to nurturing and developing its people, but also highlight the specialisms, expertise and strength in depth across all of our service lines.”

The group’s M&A, transaction services, and SPA advisory lines contain seven partners and three directors.

The appointments come at a time of growth for BHP, following its advising of Cazoo’s Smart Fleet Solutions deal, and YFM Equity Partners’ Force24 investment.

Kevin Davies, partner at BHP corporate finance, said: “I’m tremendously proud of the way our team has adapted, expanded and succeeded in spite of the unusual times and the differing challenges that all businesses are currently facing.

“With the numerous talented and dedicated individuals that have recently joined us we’re confident that we will have another strong year with a team fully-equipped to meet the increasing demands of the deal-making environment.”
