After continuing their impressive deal-making record through the pandemic, Cooper Parry Corporate Finance have welcomed a new Deal Originator to the team.
Jemma Bailey joined us on 2 November, and her role is all about connecting with companies, developing new relationships and building our pipeline of future work across sectors where our deal credentials and buyer interests lie.
They include Health & Social Care, Technology, and Tech-Enabled Business Services in particular, and thanks to her background in recruitment, Jemma has tons of experience in building long-term relationships with targets and proactively sourcing leads.
NO TIME LIKE NOW
Recently, we’ve been seeing business owners reviewing their exit or investment plans, which in many cases has been accelerated by genuine concerns around potential Capital Gains Tax rises in the Spring budget.
De-risking, by either selling their business or taking on a private equity partner to share the risk, grow and bank some cash is high on the agenda for many.
Many companies have diversified, demonstrating their innovative and entrepreneurial nature, so may be looking for investment to grow organically or by acquisition, too.
So, with two deals completed in lockdown, one deal exchanged and two imminent completions, Jemma arrives at the perfect time to help our Corporate Finance team go from strength to strength.
“I’m really excited to be joining Cooper Parry Corporate Finance. The culture and business model are hugely attractive to me, and I cannot wait to be an integral part of their ambitious growth plans.
“I am really looking forward to connecting with companies and building a pipeline of future deals across sectors. I believe my skill set will enhance the Corporate Finance team and I am excited to help this business grow from strength to strength.”
Laura Clarke, Origination Director at Cooper Parry Corporate Finance, added:
“Over the past 3 years, CPCF has built a fantastic Origination team and Jemma’s appointment is an exciting step to accelerate our growth.
“Jemma will be working closely with our team of analysts to provide relevant and interesting market and deal information for business owners in sectors we know well. In her previous roles, Jemma has built an impressive contact base, so we look forward to her building long term relationships with entrepreneurial, fast-growing businesses in our chosen sectors.”
