Tim Spooner joins our South West team
We’re pleased to announce the appointment of a new Partner as we continue to grow our team.
Tim Spooner joins the firm’s team in the South West following more than 20 years at KPMG, which includes having worked in a senior leadership role in its corporate finance team in the region since 2011. At KPMG, Tim provided tailored, strategic advice to local business owners and management teams on a wide range of transactions across sectors including healthcare, technology and infrastructure. Tim’s recent deal experience includes successfully advising clients such as Amdaris, Mike Burton Group, Inside Travel Group, Power Electrics and JoJo Maman Bébé on various sale processes, capital raises and non-core disposals.
In his new role, he will work as part of our growing team to help expand our footprint in the region.
Tim Spooner, Partner at FRP Corporate Finance, said: “FRP Corporate Finance is highly regarded across the industry and has a track record of delivering excellent work for high-profile clients and transactions.
“As a Bristolian, I’m looking forward to getting out there, re-connecting with and meeting more of the ambitious and driven businesses that make the South West such an exciting place to be, as well as working alongside my new talented and experienced colleagues.”
Tim’s appointment follows two partner promotions in our Bristol office so far this year – Jonathan Dunn within our Restructuring Advisory team and Matt Whitchurch within our Financial Advisory team..
Deals that we have advised on in the region over the last year include healthcare infrastructure business Archus’ investment from BGF, the sale of US-based international expansion specialist Blueback Global, which also has an office in Bristol, to TopSource Worldwide, and insulation services provider SCIS’s acquisition of Cotswold Energy Group..
The team’s growth follows a successful 2022 for FRP Corporate Finance. We advised on 84 transactions throughout last year with a total value of £2.9 billion.
Partner Mark Naughton, who leads our Corporate Finance team in the South West, added: “Tim’s appointment reiterates our ability to attract the very best talent in the corporate finance sector, as we work to expand our regional offering and teams across the country.
“He is well known in the Bristol dealmaking community and brings a wealth of experience to support our ongoing growth and help deliver the best possible outcomes for our clients.”
Andrew Sheridan, who is our Location Leader in Bristol, said: “The breadth and depth of experience we now have across the firm and in Bristol and the wider South West means we are well placed to deliver for our clients across each of our connected service pillars – Corporate Finance, Debt Advisory, Financial Advisory, Forensic Services and Restructuring Advisory – at a critical time for firms in the region.”
