Following a record year in 2020, which saw the team complete more than 20 transactions for North East businesses, MHA Tait Walker Corporate Finance has further strengthened its team with the appointment of John O’Sullivan as Corporate Finance Executive.

John joins the team from RSM where he started as a graduate in 2017 and quickly rose through the ranks to an ACA qualified Assistant Manager in the Audit Team.

Lee Humble, Associate Partner said: “We are delighted to welcome John to the team and look forward to working with him. 2020 was a strange year, book ended by significant levels of activity, with our visibility for Q1 2021 suggesting this momentum is set to continue at least in the short term.

“Covid-19 has clearly disrupted businesses in our region, but we are now seeing the emergence of growth and several “Covid businesses” which have taken off in a short space of time.

“John will be a great addition to the team in a time where capital raising is becoming essential, and when large numbers of management teams are looking to secure their future via buy out activity.”

John added: “I can’t wait to get started with the Corporate Finance team at MHA Tait Walker. I have been lucky to have been presented with the opportunity to work within such a forward-thinking team in these challenging times and I look forward to learning as much as possible from my peers.

“My background in audit coupled with my strong commercial awareness will no doubt prove invaluable in what I suspect to be a testing yet dynamic period for the market with the uncertainty around due to Covid-19 and the potential impact of the budget in respect to capital gains tax.”
