Prior to joining Buzzacott, Matt trained with Grant Thornton and spent his formative years working in their London Corporate Finance team. In 2007 he joined the boutique practice, Roffe Swayne, and during his time there he played a pivotal role in developing the firm's corporate finance offering. Establishing himself as a respected adviser in the London and South East corporate finance market, Matt has been nominated for 'Insider South East Dealmaker of the Year' twice and 'Insider South East Corporate Finance Adviser of the Year' for five consecutive years.

In 2018 Matt was shortlisted for New Partner of the Year at the British Accountancy Awards. Matt didn’t win the award, gracious in defeat, explaining to the team that he simply wasn’t new enough. But the nomination did reflect the fact that he (and the team) bring all the skills a client may need to create successful transactions – professionalism, technical skill, pragmatism, persistence and patience.
