New executive supports finance firm’s ambitions

Please Credit Picture:Keith Taylor A LEADING corporate finance business has appointed a new executive following growth and expansion over recent months.

Clive Owen Corporate Finance in Darlington, part of accountants and business advisers Clive Owen LLP, has reported a significant increase in business, particularly in its due diligence work, over the last 12 months.


The team is planning to further grow the number of transactions completed and has appointed Robert Cooper as corporate finance executive to support the firm’s ambitions.


Robert had previously been involved in his own business in India, specialising in SEO and web design. As a director, he was involved in financial forecasting, identifying trends and weaknesses in businesses and offering solutions and strategies.  He developed business partnerships and was heavily involved in various types of negotiations.


Prior to that, Robert had been involved in other businesses, including a company which sold properties across the UK which gave him experience of transactions, negotiating and due diligence reporting.



Angus Allan, corporate finance partner at Clive Owen, said: “We’ve had a very successful 12 months and we anticipate further growth this year. We’re delighted to welcome Robert to the team to help us to continue to grow.  Robert has great skills and his experience has been gained from running his own operations. He has all the relevant expertise to be an integral part of the team.”


Robert added: “This is a great move for me. I am eager to develop my corporate finance career and this is an excellent opportunity.  I have been involved in many of the lines of work undertaken with corporate finance but from a director’s perspective.


“I’m excited to bring that experience into a professional practice and use it to benefit a range of clients.”

“Lindsay personifies creativity. No matter what message you're trying to get across, she comes up with a story that's novel and that works. Lindsay is also generous with her time and ideas, and is genuinely a lovely person to work with. She has helped me with story development, writing press releases and managing press release distribution - and her success rate with having articles published speaks for itself. Highly recommended"
