As an experienced Corporate Financial Accountant, Jamie is an expert in advising privately-owned companies on a wide range of projects, including debt, grant and equity finance raising, acquisitions, disposals, MBOs, MBIs, corporate venturing and strategic advisory.
He also has considerable operational experience, having been managing director of industrial textiles and sports equipment maintenance businesses, during which time he effected significant changes resulting in record profit levels. He ultimately oversaw the sale of both businesses, realising full value for shareholders.
Since returning to professional services, Jamie has focused on using his own experiences of the challenges and pitfalls of business to advise others, particularly when managing both the objectives and expectations of a large number of shareholders and other stakeholders. His time spent as a principal, as well as an advisor, enables him to better understand the operational and people issues, and their impact on the financial and commercial well-being of the business.
He is a valuable asset to HarperCo, supporting throughout the entire process, from initial planning, deal initiation, project management, and assistance with strategic implementation post-transaction, as well as ensuring we have a clear financial strategy and robust financial management.
