Deloitte re­cruit two new ex­perts

Birmingham Post - - NEWS -

THE cor­po­rate fi­nance lead ad­vi­sory team at Deloitte in Birm­ing­ham has wel­comed two new faces.

Sabial Hanif joins as as­sis­tant di­rec­tor from PKF Cooper Parry, while man­ager James Mei has trans­ferred from Deloitte’s cor­po­rate fi­nance team in Shang­hai.

Mr Hanif has al­most ten years of ex­pe­ri­ence work­ing with FTSE clients, SMEs and pri­vate eq­ui­ty­backed busi­nesses across a range of sec­tors in­clud­ing tech­nol­ogy, me­dia and telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions and busi­ness ser­vices.

Mr Mei has been with the firm for al­most three years in China. Over the past two years, he has spe­cialised in cross-bor­der merg­ers and ac­qui­si­tions, buy and sell-side ad­vi­sory and trans­ac­tion work across sec­tors such as con­sumer goods, tech­nol­ogy and in­dus­trial prod­ucts.

Dar­ren Boocock, head of Deloitte cor­po­rate fi­nance in the Mid­lands, said: “2018 was a phenom­e­nal year for the Mid­lands team.

“We ad­vised on ten deals, to­talling more than £550 mil­lion, with fur­ther deals to be com­pleted in the early part of 2019. To con­tinue this suc­cess and max­imise the op­por­tu­ni­ties avail­able in the mar­ket, we were keen to re­cruit ex­pe­ri­enced in­di­vid­u­als, not just in terms of lead ad­vi­sory ex­per­tise, but also sec­tor knowl­edge and ver­sa­til­ity.

“Both Sabial and James add a new di­men­sion to the team, bring­ing with them a depth of knowl­edge that fits with both the ex­ist­ing team and ar­eas of planned growth.

“For both of them, we are able to of­fer an out­stand­ing ca­reer de­vel­op­ment op­por­tu­nity.”
