Beever and Struthers, which has offices in Manchester, Blackburn, Birmingham and London, has recruited a director to its corporate team to meet “growing demand from clients”.
The firm revealed that Dean Curtis has re-joined the team from Ballard Evans Corporate Finance, and will support John Jones, Corporate Services partner, providing advice to clients looking for strategic or financial support.
Dean joins newly promoted directors in both the audit (Richard Graham and Jonathan Mather) and tax departments (Julie Hernon), reflecting the growth of the firm over recent months.
Beever and Struthers said recruitment has continued through the pandemic at “record levels”, bringing many new faces to the teams across all locations. Growth within the not-for-profit sector in particular has led to several new appointments, including Helen Storr, senior manager based in its London office.
It comes as the firm has seen “record growth” in all its locations, and service lines, with revenues anticipated to grow by 10% in the current year.
Jones said: “We have ambitious plans to develop our offering but it’s a very personalised service we offer so getting the right person was critical. As soon as Dean and I discussed the opportunity it felt right and I am really excited to be working together again.”
Curtis added: “Having spent the past four years further developing my M&A skills and experience in the SME market, I’m delighted to have re-joined the firm at this point in its growth.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to help build a team focusing on advising our clients across a variety of sectors, from business sales through to private equity transactions, acquisitions, MBO/MBIs and fundraising.”
