George joined Buzzacott in 2014 and is an Associate Director in our Corporate Finance team.
His work focuses on primarily performing financial due diligence services for private equity houses, venture capital funds, banks and acquisitive companies. Where required, he also provides transaction advisory services, helping clients to negotiate the best possible deal. He has a particular focus on search funds, enjoying the level of involvement and support such transactions require from a due diligence, transaction advisory and project management angle (and also having the chance to work with highly motivated young entrepreneurs putting into practise key skills learned in their MBAs).
George and his team strive to provide a bespoke service optimised to clients’ needs. Rather than produce a standard “one-size fits all” report, he tailors reports to be most useful to clients from a decision-making perspective and to keep them cost-effective. Reports will range from single issue reports (on one particular issue such as working capital) to initial red flag reports (highlighting initial concerns in a potential target) to a full report.
George has experience performing due diligence on companies operating in a wide array of sectors, with a particular focus on tech & media, consumer products and business services. Given his audit background, he has a strong understanding of FRS102 and always looks for opportunities to add value by making recommendations to clients. He undertook a secondment in 2018 to work at a US-based accounting firm where he had the opportunity to work with New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) listed clients.
George is ACA qualified, and prior to joining Buzzacott, he worked as a tennis coach. He also enjoys both watching and playing football and following the Pittsburgh Steelers NFL team.
