Bishopsgate Corporate Finance expands following record year

Bishopsgate has further strengthened its deal making team with the appointment of Ed Wesson as Corporate Finance Manager and the promotion of James McBain Allan to Director.

The appointments follow a record year as the boutique completed a number of high profile transactions most notably the acquisition of Bullitt Group and the sale of Virgin Experience Days to Inflexion Private Equity for £40m.

Ed Wesson joins from Smith Cooper Corporate Finance, having spent the past three and a half years working in the lead advisory team in Nottingham. He is experienced in working with entrepreneurs and owner managers across a wide range of sectors in the mid-market.

He said: “I’m delighted to have joined Bishopsgate. I was attracted by their unique and entrepreneurial approach to deal-making which has seen them achieve some truly exceptional outcomes for their clients and I’m looking forward to being a part of that.”

James McBain Allan, Director at Bishopsgate added: “Ed is a talented and passionate individual and both Simon and I look forward to working with him for many years to come as we look to continue to grow within local and national corporate finance markets.”
