Winning Dealmakers

Issue 69

MHA Tait Walker Corporate Finance team are delighted to have won the Corporate Finance Advisory Firm of the Year award at the North East Dealmakers Awards 2020!

The award is for the corporate finance firm based in the North East judged the most outstanding in advising North East-based businesses on completed transactions during the qualifying period (1st August 2019 – 31st July 2020). The team, which is led by Corporate Finance Partner Steve Plaskitt, had a very successful qualifying period, being involved in 26 transactions, including the two largest deals in the North East during 2020 – North East Manufacturers HTL Group and a strategic international acquisition for Orchard Information Systems, a leading provider of software solutions to the UK housing sector. The judges were impressed with the clear focus on client relationships during the COVID pandemic, as well as meeting the growing demand from private equity for Data Analytics. Steve Plaskitt, our Corporate Finance Partner, said: “Winning this award in such a hard year due to the pandemic and everyone having to work remotely is a true testament to the hard work, commitment and team work of the Corporate Finance Team. I’d also like to thank all of our clients, and everyone we work with. This has been a real team effort and I am delighted to be recognised amongst such distinguished peers in the industry.”
