FRP Corporate Finance grows East Midlands team with new hire

Oliver Taylor joins the East Midlands team as Associate Director

We have continued to grow our footprint in the East Midlands with the appointment of Oliver Taylor as Associate Director in our Nottingham and Leicester offices.

With eight years’ experience in the financial services industry, Oliver began his career in corporate foreign exchange, advising on and managing the delivery of funds to a global client base.

This included recent roles working on the sale of a national healthcare telecommunications provider to an industry consolidator, the sale of a specialist offshore energy infrastructure maintenance business and the cross-border sale of a marine services business to a Finnish technology group.

At FRP, Oliver will work alongside colleagues in our 16-strong East Midlands practice and across our national Corporate Finance office network to deliver a full range of corporate finance services, including mergers and acquisitions, management buy-outs, strategic reviews and fundraising.

Oliver’s appointment comes amid a strong pipeline of activity for the East Midlands team.

In 2021, it completed 10 deals, including the sale of Everest Dairies to Vibrant Foods, the sale of SMS to an employee ownership trust and the cross-border acquisition of Aqualla Brassware by FM Mattsson Mora Group AB.

Meanwhile, in January, it advised Kartell UK Limited – one of the largest and fastest-growing suppliers of heating and bathroom products to the independent merchant and showroom sector in the UK, on its multi-million-pound acquisition of Summerbridge Doors.

Harry Walker, Partner at FRP Corporate Finance, said: “The East Midlands has a thriving community of growth-focused firms, with strong demand for corporate finance support and advice.

“Oliver brings a breadth of experience to the team, with a track record of working on a range of private equity and corporate M&A, across industries as diverse as technology, healthcare and consumer products. His appointment continues the expansion of our presence in the region and ultimately bolsters the strength of our 60-strong corporate finance team nationwide, putting us in an even stronger position to help our clients make their strategic ambitions a reality.”

Oliver Taylor, Associate Director at FRP Corporate Finance, added: “FRP has established a reputation for taking a pragmatic approach to corporate finance and delivering great outcomes for clients.

“I’m very excited to be joining the team, and to be able to draw on my experience to help them deliver the best possible outcomes for businesses and stakeholders – here in the East Midlands and across the country.”
