Hi I'm James...
What is your role at Creaseys?
I’m an audit and business advisory partner, working with corporate clients across a range of sectors, providing everything from audit to mentoring for entrepreneurs. I also lead our transactional service offering.
What are your specialisms and areas of interest?
Media and technology, including early stage and start-up businesses. Transactional support. Fundraising, including alternative financing solutions. Charities and not-for-profit.
What's your proudest achievement at Creaseys (so far)?
A client of mine, based in the US, had secured several contracts in Europe but was unable to service those from their existing UK facility. They asked us to help them to identify and approach potential acquisition targets in the UK and Europe to provide that required capacity. Over the course of a year we worked very closely with them to find and critically review a series of potential targets, culminating in us identifying a company that the client acquired at a very competitive price, and that has enabled them to build the capacity that they need in order to deliver on those contracts. It gives me immense satisfaction when I help a client to do something interesting and innovative to grow their business.
