In his new role, he will be responsible for growing the valuation service line within the firm.
Davies holds almost 20 years’ experience in financial and business advisory services, and specialises in business valuations.
Prior to FRP he was a senior director at Alvarez and Marsal, where he spent the past seven years developing its UK and European valuation practice.
A chartered management accountant, he began his career at Deutsche Bank, before moving to the valuation and business modelling team within a big four firm.
He has worked with companies across numerous sectors and territories, including Europe, North and South America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East, and in a wide range of contexts including acquisitions, joint ventures and insolvencies.
Jeremy French, COO at FRP, said: “Jim is an excellent addition to the team. He brings a wealth of experience and a global perspective to our valuation offering, and has a track record of delivering excellent service and outcomes across a range of sectors and circumstances.
“As businesses emerge from the disruption and turbulence of these past months and look at how they can capitalise on new opportunities for growth, having the right advice will be key. Continuing to develop our service areas with the very best talent will mean we’re perfectly positioned to provide the support they need and drive further growth.”
