Dow Schofield Watts has expanded its corporate finance team in the North West with the appointment of Rose Arnold as an executive.
Arnold has six years’ experience in finance. She started her career at PwC in Manchester, where she qualified as a chartered accountant and worked in digital audit, testing IT access and controls for some of the UK’s leading banks and financial institutions.
She went on to work for the online retailer the Very Group where, as an analyst in its financial services arm, her role included financial planning and monitoring.
The firm said the appointment comes as recent deal statistics show that Dow Schofield Watts was the “most active” corporate finance adviser in the North West during the first quarter of the year, and also ranked sixth in the UK, based on deal volume.
Gregg Pendlington, who leads the North West corporate finance team, said: “Rose’s relevant experience makes her a valuable addition to our team. Given the recent levels of activity and the strong deals pipeline, Rose’s appointment gives us additional capacity in what continues to be a very busy market.”
