EXPERIENCED corporate financier Carl Swansbury has joined chartered accountants and business advisers Ryecroft Glenton.
After qualifying as one of the UK’s youngest chartered accountants at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Newcastle, Swansbury joined RSM Tenon, moving from the North East to join its corporate finance business in Nottingham.
While there he specialised in advising SMEs and privately-owned businesses on all aspects of corporate finance, from preparing a business for sale, making a strategic acquisition and raising funds for growth, to completing management buy-outs.
He is returning to the region to take up a newly-created role at Ryecroft Glenton, working with the region’s entrepreneurs and privately-owned businesses.
He said: “I like to get to know my clients and their businesses much sooner than many other corporate financiers to help them achieve their corporate and personal objectives.
“I work with many growing businesses that are not yet at a transactional stage, helping them grow and prepare their business for exit while also helping them to identify and document a clear strategy.
“For vendors and buyers my role is to fully understand their personal and business aspirations and to ensure they maximise the capital value they create within and ultimately extract from their business.”
Swansbury will work alongside corporate finance transaction services partner Grahame Maughan, tax planning partner Tim Mallon and Peter Glenton, a qualified non-practising corporate lawyer and chartered accountant when advising on corporate transactions.
Chris Robson, Ryecroft Glenton’s managing partner, said: “Carl’s expertise, enthusiasm and drive take our corporate finance offering to a new level. He has the experience, the track record and the collaborative approach which will undoubtedly lead to new business and valuable opportunities for clients and for our firm.”
