We are pleased to announce that we have strengthened our Corporate Finance offering in London with the appointment of valuation specialist, Jim Davies. He joins as a Partner, and will be responsible for growing our valuation service line.
Jim holds almost 20 years’ experience in financial and business advisory services, and specialises in business valuations.
A chartered management accountant, he began his career at a major international bank, before moving to the valuation and business modelling team within a Big Four firm. He has worked with companies across numerous sectors and territories, including Europe, North and South America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East, and in a wide range of contexts – from acquisitions to joint ventures and insolvencies.
Notable previous assignments include valuing a UK Listed Bank’s largest single exposure in a restructuring context; valuing several restructuring funds for a European Bank; and providing valuation services for the world’s largest technology-focused venture capital fund.
Jim Davies, Partner, said: “FRP is highly regarded across the industry. This is an exceptional opportunity to help build the valuation offering of a company that already excels in its core markets and is demonstrating rapid growth. I’m looking forward to working with my colleagues across the Corporate Finance team and the wider business to build on this success.”
COO Jeremy French added: “Jim is an excellent addition to the team. He brings a wealth of experience and a global perspective to our valuation offering, and has a track record of delivering excellent service and outcomes across a range of sectors and circumstances.
“As businesses emerge from the disruption and turbulence of these past months and look at how they can capitalise on new opportunities for growth, having the right advice will be key. Continuing to develop our service areas with the very best talent will mean we’re perfectly positioned to provide the support they need and drive further growth.”
