Adrian said: “To offer a comprehensive suite of corporate finance support to our clients, it’s vital that we invest in our team. Businesses across the region are continuing to invest and drive growth, and these appointments will ensure that we continue to provide the independent, expert advice our team has built its reputation on.”
