Channel M&A specialist firm, Knight Corporate Finance today announced the appointment of two new people to the team, following a raft of transactions in the telecoms sector. Rob Burbidge joins from j4b PLC where he was Finance Director and will be providing consultancy to clients and managing deals. Kelly Edwards comes from V Networks to take on the role of Office Manager.
Knight Corporate Finance was formed at the start of the year by Paul Billingham and
Adam Zoldan, and they have already made a significant impression in the market. The latest transaction was advising Daisy on the acquisition of Redstone’s telecoms business for £17m in August. Both new recruits have extensive experience in working in telecoms and M&A, and will work alongside co-founders Adam Zoldan and Paul Billingham.
Billingham said: “Since forming the business we have completed six transactions and gained a number of clients on a retained basis. M&A in the industry is incredibly active and in order to continue to support our current clients and to develop new business opportunities we felt the time was right to invest in the business. Rob and Kelly both bring much needed skills to Knight which will complement myself and Adam.”
