Deloitte strengthens corporate finance team

Professional services firm Deloitte has significantly strengthened its corporate finance advisory team in Birmingham with the appointment of Steve White as senior director.

Steve, an experienced transactor, joins the team from Deloitte in the South East, where he led the firm’s corporate finance team in Cambridge and St Albans.

During his four years in the role he established a corporate finance team which completed thirteen successful transactions including the buyout of Charterhouse Print Management and the disposal of Pegasus Retirement Homes. Steve also led Deloitte’s corporate finance automotive sector team.

As a senior director in Deloitte’s Birmingham corporate finance team, Steve will be reunited with his former colleague in the South East, Darren Boocock.

Darren, partner and head of the team, said: “This is an exciting development for us. The sustained pick up in M&A activity in the region over the last six to nine months, and our confidence in the future, suggests that now is the right time to expand our team.  Landing Steve is a fantastic coup.  I’ve known him for a number of years and I know he will leverage his considerable deal expertise for our clients’ benefit. 

“He has a wealth of experience of advising clients on strategies to grow and realise shareholder value, as well as a strong track record in deal origination and execution.

“His appointment demonstrates Deloitte’s continued commitment to the Midlands and our confidence in the regional economy.  It is an important step in our ongoing investment in the Birmingham corporate finance team and our ambition is to grow it further.”

Steve said: “I’m looking forward to working with Darren again. Under his leadership, the corporate finance team has established a strong reputation in the local marketplace.  I have been particularly impressed by the quality and strength of their client relationships.  I will bring additional senior expertise to benefit both our clients and deal situations.”
