One of the region’s fastest growing corporate advisory firms has strengthened its team with a new appointment.

Lexington Corporate Advisors, which specialises in providing tailored strategic advice targeted at business growth, acquisitions, disposals and fund raising, has welcomed Chartered Accountant Thomas Edwards.

The 27-year-old from Swansea joins the team from Broomfield & Alexander where he worked with entrepreneurs and growing businesses with a focus on advising management teams on MBO’s and shareholders on strategic disposals.

Thomas said: “I am delighted to be joining Lexington at an exciting time for the firm, with a number of live deals and many more in the pipeline. I am looking forward to being part of the team and contributing to the firm’s future success.”

Thomas is one of the very few professionals in South Wales who has pursued the prestigious ICAEW Corporate Finance qualification. He also has significant transaction due diligence experience which he will look to grow and develop further at Lexington.

Mr Edwards takes up the role of Corporate Finance Manager at the entrepreneurial advisory firm which was set up in January 2016, by Gary Partridge and Nigel Greenaway.

Drawing upon Gary and Nigel’s combined network, knowledge and over 40 years’ experience of working in corporate finance, Lexington works right across the UK as Lead Advisor providing trusted advice to companies and their owners seeking to facilitate growth and crystallise value.

Co-founder Mr Partridge said Mr Edwards was an excellent appointment for the firm.

He said: “He is a perfect fit for Lexington – he is hungry for success and his background and experience matches Lexington’s transaction focus coupled with his level headed, mature approach to business.

“He has slotted into our professional team and provided an added dimension to our services drawing upon his transaction due diligence expertise.

“We are delighted Thomas has joined Lexington as we deliver upon our plans for continued growth.”
