Ryecroft Glenton Corporate Finance (RGCF) has promoted a talented dealmaker, who has advised on a number of high-profile transactions across a range of industry sectors, over the past 12 months.

Alex Simpson, 29, has spent the past 12 months working as a Corporate Finance Executive and has been promoted to Corporate Finance Manager following his significant contribution to a number of high-profile transactions including the £17.1m sale of MTrec to Trust Tech Inc, the sale of RDW to InterQuest Plc and the sale of Classic Education to Servoca PLC.

Ryecroft Glenton Corporate Finance has established a strong reputation for the provision of strategic advice, which has enabled a number of its clients to deliver growth strategies and increase shareholder value.

Originally from Derby, Alex graduated from Newcastle University with a BA (Hons) degree in Accountancy and Finance. After a gap year where he travelled through South America, Alex returned to the North East to build his career, which began after he was accepted onto Deloitte’s Graduate Scheme. He completed his ACA qualification before joining Ernst & Young.

Alex said: “My first year in corporate finance has been very rewarding and provided me with the opportunity to work on deals for multi-national, listed and overseas companies, as well as Private Equity. It has been non-stop but the hard work has paid off and I’m proud to be part of a firm that is well-respected throughout the industry.”

Carl Swansbury, Partner at Ryecroft Glenton Corporate Finance, said: “Alex has a great work ethic and is passionate about the job he does, which makes him a great ambassador for Ryecroft Glenton Corporate Finance. We’re delighted with the impact he has had since he joined the firm last year and his recent promotion is hugely deserved.”

Chris Robson, Managing Partner at Ryecroft Glenton, said: “Alex has acquitted himself very well during his time as a Corporate Finance Executive and fully-deserves his promotion. His work is exceptional and he sets a great example to his peers.”
