The corporate finance team at accountancy and advisory firm MHA Moore and Smalley has been further strengthened by the arrival of experienced dealmaker Rob Richardson.

Rob, who has been in the profession for over 30 years, joins the firm from Azets where he was a partner and head of corporate finance in the north. 

He will bring additional leadership and support to MHA Moore and Smalley’s 15 strong corporate finance team, advising owner managed businesses on sales, acquisitions, MBOs, EOTs and other strategic succession projects.

Andy Feeke, partner and head of the corporate finance team at MHA Moore and Smalley, said: “Rob is a highly experienced operator with an excellent reputation among the North West M&A community.

“Our focus is to further build a full-service, specialist mid-market corporate finance team and Rob will play a vital role in allowing us to continue our growth journey. 

“His experience of completing deals across a wide range of sectors will not only provide invaluable advice and support to our clients but also hugely benefit our team, helping them develop their skills and expertise.”

Rob added: “I’ve known Andy for several years and have followed his success in helping MHA Moore and Smalley grow its corporate finance team, built on an excellent reputation for high quality service and ‘can-do’ attitude.

“I was drawn to MHA Moore and Smalley because of its people, culture and the exciting journey the whole firm is on supporting business owners and management teams across the North. I’m proud to have the opportunity to contribute to that journey.”

Rob’s appointment is the latest in a series of high profile, senior appointments within the firm. It follows the summer additions of Lee Van Houplines and Lindsey Shepherd, who both joined as partners within the firm’s audit team, and Rob Dawes who was appointed as a partner with a focus on leading a dedicated transaction services team. Rob’s appointment now brings the total number of partners within the firm to 29 with more than 400 staff employed overall.

This latest addition also means the corporate finance team offers an ever-deeper range of corporate finance specialisms including M&A, fundraising, valuations and transaction services.
