Alex is a highly experienced transactions-focused partner with more than 15 years in corporate finance and senior finance roles. He’s worked both in practice and in large corporations, including Oxford Instruments plc and Pets at Home Group plc.

Alex focuses on mid-market transactions in the £5m to £100m EV range, where he provides robust and thorough due diligence advice to corporates, private equity investors and funders. Having worked outside of professional practice, including two years in the US, Alex has a breadth of experience and knowledge of businesses that is highly valued by his clients during a deal process.

He is a specialist in vendor due diligence assignments. While he works across a range of sectors in both buyside and sellside roles, he has expertise in TMT (especially ITMS/telecoms), industrials/manufacturing, human capital and healthcare and pharma services.

"I am driven to deliver best-in-class service working proactively and collaboratively with clients through each transaction. When assessing an acquisition target, we really get close to the business, understand its value drivers and key risks, and provide timely, focused and value-added advice to assist in decision making."

Alex is a keen sportsman but has long since traded in his boxing gloves and rugby kit for a set of golf clubs. He intends to live out any unfulfilled sporting ambitions vicariously through his son, young Alfie.
