FRP boosts Corporate Finance team in Bristol

Alex Sargeant joins as Associate Director

We have bolstered our Corporate Finance practice in Bristol following the appointment of Alex Sargeant as Associate Director and Arvin Feltham as Assistant Manager.

Alex joins the firm from PWC, where he was an Associate Director in corporate finance. Before this he was at Deloitte where he joined as a graduate in 2009.

Alex brings pan-advisory experience to the role, having worked across transaction services as well as in mergers and acquisitions (M&A), private equity transactions, disposals and acquisitions.

Since joining, he has already advised on two deals – the $9.25 million Avon Rubber divestment and the sale of Somerset-based global water specialists Hydro International.

Arvin joins us from RSM UK, bringing corporate finance expertise in M&A, equity and debt financings.

Commenting on his appointment, Alex said: “There is a thriving corporate finance community in Bristol, and I’m looking forward to working alongside Mark Naughton to execute further deals on the ground here in the South West.

“As a genuinely independent corporate finance team, we can bring a fresh perspective to the regional businesses we work with. I’m confident we have the right expertise to support the growth ambitions of businesses across the region.”

Mark Naughton, Partner at our Bristol office, added: “Alex and Arvin join FRP at a time when we are seeing considerable growth in our South West corporate finance team, with recent activity including Avon Rubber and Hydro International. Their appointments further boost the team and will give us the opportunity to unlock and execute further transactions in the region.”
