Paul joined the transaction team at Evolution Capital in November 2019 as an M&A adviser, bringing with him three decades of experience in corporate finance.
His long and established career in the City saw him working on numerous IPOs, small-cap M&A transactions and secondary fundraisings (both on AIM and the Full List) worth a combined market capitalisation of over £3bn. He has led a number of flotations in the tech sector, including SDL - the global leader and innovator in language and content management solutions. Other high profile IPOs include Caffe Nero, Brands Hatch and Southampton Football Club.
Paul qualified as a chartered accountant with Price Waterhouse in 1994, after which he worked with some of the best names in corporate finance, including Ernst & Young, Beeson Gregory, Collins Stewart, Arden Partners and latterly Seymour Pierce. This wealth of experience makes him a senior appointment at Evolution Capital, further expanding the already comprehensive transaction services we offer our many TMT clients.
Prior to his current role, Paul was finance director of Fibre 7 UK Limited. In addition, Paul serves as a non executive director on the board of Angling Direct – an AIM-listed fishing tackle retailer.
