FRP Corporate Finance strengthens Midlands offering with new Partner
Thursday February 8, 2024
Dan Salt joins our Birmingham team
We’re pleased to announce the appointment of a new Partner as we continue to grow our team and look to bolster our support for businesses across the Midlands.
Dan Salt joins our Birmingham office, having spent the last four years within the Midlands M&A team at EY. There, he provided tailored, strategic advice to business owners and management teams on a wide range of transactions across sectors including industrials, business services, energy transition, and building products.
Dan’s recent deal experience includes successfully advising clients such as automotive specialists SYNETIQ and Fastlane Paint & Body, and affiliate marketing services Skycon Limited, on various acquisition and sale processes.
He previously spent time at Clearwater International and, prior to that, working in leveraged finance at Royal Bank of Scotland.
Dan will now work to help grow our Midlands team and expand our footprint in the region.
We continue to grow having acquired a series of corporate finance and restructuring outfits – adding eight new offices across the UK and its first international office, in Cyprus – since listing on AIM in 2020.
Dan Salt, partner at FRP Corporate Finance, said: “FRP Corporate Finance is already very well known for the quality of its people and its track record of working on some of the most high-profile transactions up and down the country.
“The Midlands is home to a vibrant corporate finance community and, despite a slightly quieter 2023 in terms of M&A activity, the drivers for management teams to invest in, grow or sell their businesses haven’t gone away, and we expect this year to be stronger and more transactions to take place.
“What I’m now looking forward to most is working alongside my new talented and experienced colleagues, and getting out there and building new relationships with ambitious local businesses.”
Jeremy French, Chief Operating Officer at FRP, added: “Dan’s appointment reiterates both our ability to attract the very best talent in the corporate finance sector, and our commitment to expanding our offering in the Midlands as part of growing our national team.”
“His stature in the Midlands dealmaking community and the wealth of experience he brings means the team is now perfectly placed to continue to grow and deliver the best possible outcomes for our clients.”
