FRP takes home six awards at regional dealmaker awards

Team wins six awards across the East Midlands and South West

We are thrilled to announce that our Corporate Finance team has won six awards at the East Midlands and South West Dealmakers Awards 2020.

The awards recognise excellence in deal making and at the East Midlands Dealmakers Awards, our Corporate Finance team in Leicester picked up Deal of the Year for their work on Kartell UK’s acquisition of Just Trays.

These awards were followed by the South West Dealmakers, where our Bristol team swept the board with an impressive five award wins. This included Dealmaker of the Year for Mark Naughton, Highly Commended Emerging Dealmaker of the Year for Alex Sargeant, and Corporate Finance Advisory Team of the Year for the team.

In addition to the individual and team categories, our team also picked up two awards for its work on some of the region’s best deals over the past 12 months – with Prowrap’s investment from Longacre Group picking up Highly Commended Deal of the Year and the acquisition of W. Stevenson & Sons by Vistgate Group, which trades as Ocean Fish, picking up Small Deal of the Year.

Commenting on the awards, David Clensy, editor of South West Business Insider, said: “South West Dealmakers is always a great opportunity to celebrate the achievements and hard work of the region’s deal making and corporate finance community. We wanted to take the opportunity to recognise all that has been achieved in the community in the region in the past year and to celebrate this year’s shortlist and winners.”

Mark Naughton, Corporate Finance Partner at FRP, said: “These awards, both here in the South West and in the East Midlands, recognise the strategic support and advice our teams provide to clients across the UK. It’s great to receive this recognition from our peers and I’d like to congratulate the team on these achievements and thank them again for all they do to support our clients.”
