Leading advisory firm Quercus Corporate Finance today announces the appointment of Andrew Clegg as its fourth M&A partner. Clegg joins from KPMG where he spent 18 years focused on originating and executing mid-market transactions across the South of England. He spent six years in Gatwick, leading the firm’s Corporate Finance team across Surrey, Sussex and Kent, and the last three years in London, establishing a mid-market M&A advisory team across Greater London.
Clegg has worked on numerous high profile transactions across the region, including the sales of Shoreham-based business services provider, Pyroban Group, to US industrial group Caterpillar, Inc., and Guildford-based Surrey Satellite Technology to the French aerospace group, EADS.
Commenting on the appointment, Clegg said:
“The opportunity to join Quercus to focus exclusively on mid-market M&A across the southern region where I have spent so much of my career was too compelling to turn down. In recent times, more established advisors have decided to exit this dynamic segment of the market and I am firmly of the view that Quercus is uniquely positioned to fill the gap as business confidence continues to recover”.
Quercus chairman Nick Standen added:
“Andrew is extremely highly regarded across the southern region and his track record of getting deals done in the mid-market is exemplary. We are delighted that Andrew has decided to join Quercus and his appointment reflects our confidence in what we can achieve as growth returns to the economy. We now offer clients a unique proposition in the region; 80 years combined advisory experience and a track record of over 250 successful deals.”
