RMT retains North East Corporate Finance team of the year award.

September 25, 2015

The Corporate Finance team at RMT Accountants & Business Advisors has been named as the best in the region for the second consecutive year – and for the third time in the last four years.

Having been chosen as Corporate Finance Advisory Team of the Year at the Insider North East Dealmakers Awards in both 2012 and 2014, the RMT team beat a shortlist of five industry rivals to pick up the 2015 award in front of an audience of over 400 professional services industry peers at the Marriott Gosforth Park Hotel in Newcastle.

The Dealmaker Awards recognise the achievements of those individuals and firms whose skill, creativity and sheer determination have stood out over the past year.

Led by Maxine Pott, RMT’s CF team provides the full spectrum of corporate finance services for clients both within and outside the North East, from buying and selling companies and raising finance through to business valuations and transaction support.

Deal Makers

Major deals on which it has worked in the last year include the sales of long-standing North East technology firm Knowledge IT to infrastructure and support services group The Onyx Group, and of market-leading social care case management software developer Corelogic to The Servelec Group plc for a total value of £23.5m.

The team works predominantly with owner-managed businesses, and has also helped companies from across the region secure investments from the seven Finance For Business North East funds, as well as from the traditional funding institutions.

Mike Pott, managing director at RMT, says: “Winning this award once in competition with the high quality corporate finance teams we have in the North East would have been a real achievement in itself, but to retain it and be chosen as winners for the third time in four years says everything you need to know about the quality of our team and the work they do.

“As the economy has continued its recovery over the last 12 months, there’s been a noticeable pick up in the market, and our Corporate Finance team has helped a growing number of businesses of all sizes and types achieve their acquisition, disposal and investment ambitions.

“Our aim is to help clients of all sizes and from all business sectors to achieve their commercial and personal goals in the simplest, most straightforward way possible, and we’re able to call upon colleagues with specialist expertise in every area of finance to help make this happen.

“The ambitious clients with whom we work are creating and sustaining employment across the region by taking a proactive approach to their commercial development, and it’s exciting to see our business progressing well alongside them.”
