GRANT THORNTON has appointed Andy Morgan as its new head of corporate finance advisory, replacing Ali Sharifi who has led the team for the past two years.

Morgan joined Grant Thornton as a lead advisory partner in 2012. He has experience across the technology, media and telecommunications sector, advising on a number of and cross border transactions.

He has a particular focus on software, IT services and FinTech; and works with a range of clients including large multi-nationals, mid-sized corporates, entrepreneurs and private equity firms, the firm said.

The appointment comes off the back of a record year for the team, in which it completed transactions worth in excess of £1bn and grew revenues by more than a quarter in 2015/16.

Grant Thornton has also recently announced a number of partner promotions within the team, which include Richard Goldsack who leads the firm’s advisory offering in the North and Keely Woodley and Usman Malik in London, among others.

Commenting on his appointment Andy Morgan said: “Following the UK’s vote to leave the EU, uncertainty and volatility will more than likely remain key features of the economy for the foreseeable future. However, the market is still very much active, and I am delighted to be leading a team with the skill set to be able to help clients understand what these changes may mean for them and identify the right M&A options to capitalise on.”
