Corporate Finance Promotion!

Patrick Abel, Corporate Finance Partner, is delighted to announce that Pete Newton has been promoted to Senior Executive in Corporate Finance.

Pete has been working in Corporate Finance for 3 years and has made a valuable contribution to the success of the department at Hart Shaw, which was named Corporate Finance Advisory Firm of the Year at the Insider Sheffield City Region Dealmakers Awards 2018. In that time, Hart Shaw have been involved in several deals in which Pete has played a valuable role.

“I first came to Hart Shaw in 2013 for my placement year which consisted of spells in both Corporate Finance and the Business Services Department, before returning to University to complete my degree. Hart Shaw welcomed me back in 2015 to begin my career in accountancy. An opportunity to join Pat as part of the Corporate Finance team, was one I couldn’t turn down! During my time in Corporate Finance, working closely with a well-respected member of Yorkshire’s Corporate Finance community has afforded me the chance to gain invaluable frontline experience, dealing with a variety of transactions in terms of sector, size and scope. I’m excited to be taking this next step in my career and to see what challenges my new role and the additional responsibility will bring.” – Pete Newton
