New role for leading North East professional at RSM

RSM’s Steven Brown has joined the firm’s North East corporate finance team - strengthening its M&A offering in the region.

Having been part of the North East restructuring advisory team at RSM for 10 years, the move supports a personal ambition of Steven to expand his skill set into corporate finance. He brings significant transactional experience to his new role, as well as an extensive network of North East businesses and intermediaries.

RSM’s North East corporate finance team is enjoying its most successful year to date, having acted on a number of high profile deals, including the sale of Desco to Pell Frischmann and the management buyout of Indigo Software Group.

In his new role, Steven will work closely with Tony Edwards, head of corporate finance for the North East and Yorkshire, to strengthen the M&A offering in the region.

Tony Edwards, said:

‘It’s great to welcome Steven to the team. It’s been a very busy year, and we have a strong pipeline, so he joins us at an exciting time. This success is testimony to the skills and expertise we already have in place – and Steven’s experience will further enhance this offering.

‘It’s a win-win situation for us, as the move supports the needs of our business, but it also provides the opportunity to facilitate Steven’s personal career ambitions – supporting our commitment to attracting, developing and retaining key North East talent.’

Steven Brown added:

‘The move is a great opportunity to broaden my skill set, whilst drawing on my complementary experience to drive deal activity for the firm. I’m looking forward to building on the momentum of last year to support more North East businesses with their strategic goals.’
