Thomas Westcott Chartered Accountants has announced that it has expanded its team by appointing a new director of corporate finance, Will Mudd.
Mudd will work closely with Alison Watts, Partner and Head of Business Finance, to provide clients in the South West and beyond with advice on buying and selling businesses.
He joined the international firm Baker Tilly in 2005 as a newly qualified accountant. He then spent seven years in corporate finance roles in the Sydney offices of multinational accounting firms, including advising on major mergers and acquisitions.
Watts said: “Will joins our Corporate Finance team with an extremely impressive resume, having advised companies from start-ups to multinationals. With his global experience, as well as his experience here in the South West, he brings a wealth of experience, which will be invaluable to Thomas Westcott clients.
“The transaction market is buoyant and we are supporting a growing number of clients in business sales and purchases. We have successfully completed several significant transactions over the past few months and now need additional expertise on the team to help us meet the growing demand. »
Mudd added: “While I have spent much of my career working for multinational accounting firms, advising large corporations, I am passionate about working with smaller, owner-managed businesses and entrepreneurs. .
“I was drawn to Thomas Westcott because of his diverse client base, which includes small businesses as well as large corporations, and his culture and ethos, which align well with the personal approach I take. “
