Mark has worked in corporate finance since the turn of the century, which sounds like a long time, and it is. Much of that time has been spent with Old Mill, which he joined in 2006 when he was one of the first recruits into the then-new Exeter office.
He qualified with one of the ‘Big Four’ international accounting firms, initially in audit before finding his way into the exciting world of corporate finance. This time gave him exposure to some high-profile clients and the supposed glamour of international travel, but he really prefers working with owner-managed businesses and was keen to get back to Devon, having been at university in Exeter.
Mark is the firm’s specialist in Succession and Corporate Finance services, including business valuation, share schemes, financial due diligence, business planning and cash flow modelling. These skills bring him into all sorts of interesting projects, from employee shares schemes, to buy-outs and acquisitions and renewable energy developments.
Living on the northern edge of Dartmoor with a very bouncy spaniel, his weekends generally involve scenic dog walking, and the much less active pursuits of drinking coffee and reading a book. Probably not something to admit to, but Mark is a keen gamer, particularly racing sims.
