"The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team." – Phil Jackson
Exciting things continue to happen at Evolution Capital; this week our team of transaction experts was strengthened, welcoming yet another brilliant mind.
ACA Chartered Accountant, M&A advisor, Master’s Graduate, PwC Alumni, and National League Hockey Player Charlie joins our team of industry and transaction experts, reinforcing the company culture with his logical, competitive and pragmatic energy.
Coming from a background in financial analysis, Charlie’s knowledge of the sectors in which we exclusively advise, the business models, and experience in developing propositions for clients sets the perfect foundation for his role at Evolution Capital.
Following the completion of his first week with the company, we asked Charlie how working at a boutique advisory firm compares to his previous experience of larger corporate organisations, he said;
“The level of responsibility that falls on your shoulders as soon as you are at a boutique firm like Evolution Capital, is something that I find incredibly motivating. You also gain exposure to many new and challenging experiences,from dealing with fee structures to your classic transactional DD work.”
Our ethos at Evolution Capital is ‘No one of us is smarter than all of us’, and our combination of industry experts and transactions specialists enables our team to uncover intrinsic value to your business; and defend your proposition through due diligence to completion.
In an industry where the transactional success rate across the board runs above 1 in five deals, our team are incredibly proud of our successful completion rate sitting above 95%. Furthermore, looking at our track record of completed transactions, our processes and sector specific market methodologies are proven to maximise value for shareholders
Charlie said; “It’s great to work in a team where you have premium services for both buy-side and sell-side clients, backed up with complex methodologies and 20 years of trading. Working with the Evolution Capital team means that I get direct client exposure from the get-go, building strong relationships and producing deliverables of high importance. There is a high level of autonomy and a strong sense of personality working for a small boutique. It is easy to align with the culture and goals of the firm.”
Charlie added; “The market leading experience and knowledge that Evolution Capital has of the sector was the initial draw for me.As a result, I will be working alongside the best professionals and clients within the sector. Being part of a collaborative doors-open environment allows me to pick the brains of some incredibly knowledgeable deal makers and transaction professionals. The close-knit nature of the team means I am supported in my work whenever required. It also leads to an enjoyable sociable experience in the office.”
Our collaborative collective of industry professionals, chartered accountants,M&A specialists and dedicated analysts work to deliver maximum value, not just for our clients, also for ourselves. CEO and Lead Dealmaker Nigel Cook commented;
“We select candidates that strictly meet with the values we share with our clients,and who bring skills that will improve our advisory service. We are pleased to welcome Charlie to our team who has hit the ground running; quickly picking up new projects and integrating seamlessly into our environment and how we do things in the work place.”
In a recent interview with Technology Reseller Magazine, Nigel commented:
"The team that I’m working with now is far more talented and experienced than I've ever had before and because they're younger they’ve got a different way of doing things which is enabling us to deliver better outcomes and new services and move into new areas. We are extremely busy and moving forward at an incredible pace."
