Quercus Corporate Finance is delighted to announce the appointment of Brian Tyrer and Geoff Finch to the Senior Advisory Board.

Our Senior Advisory Board consists of seasoned entrepreneurs who have built successful businesses across a range of sectors. We recognise that a major transaction is a unique experience for most entrepreneurs we work with and that it is helpful to talk to like-minded people who have completed a similar journey.

  • Brian Tyrer spent 30 years as CEO of Pyroban, a provider of market leading explosive protection and environmental solutions for global industries. Brian successfully grew the business through acquisition and international expansion - including establishing a presence in Mainland China - before selling the business to US plant and engine group, Caterpillar, Inc., in 2011.
  • Geoff Finch has over 25 years experience in fixed, mobile and satellite communications services together with other areas of technology including the clean energy sector. He has created several start-up businesses and has worked with a range of venture capital investors.

Brian and Geoff join existing Board members, Alan Bennie (Consumer), Roger Davies (Security & defence) and Paul Philips (Business Services).

Nick Standen, Chairman of Quercus said:

"Brian and Geoff are acknowledged leaders in their respective fields and we are delighted that they have joined our Senior Advisory Board whose knowledge and vast experience provides the Quercus team with unique sector insights and our clients with reassurance and challenge. The Board's contribution clearly differentiates our approach to M&A transactions. We shall announce further appointments in the months ahead."
