Fast growing mid-market Corporate Finance Boutique Provantage, with offices in Nottingham and Birmingham, welcomes Maria Thomas, as Partner, to bolster its presence in the Midlands
Maria brings a wealth of experience advising shareholders, directors and private equity over a 16-year career focusing on the mid-market. She joins from Grant Thornton and will be based in Provantage’s Birmingham office alongside Jamie Hope. Her experience of cross-border transactions, and the local market, as well as her knowledge across a broad range of sectors, will complement the continuing growth and success of the Provantage Team.
Maria commented “I am delighted to be joining such a high-performing and successful team and look forward to helping drive the business on its next phase of growth. It’s a great time to join the team on the back of their recent deal successes, including the sale of Alpha Instrumatics to Halma Plc and Foresight Group’s exit of Datapath. Provantage has built an enviable culture focusing on client delivery and the development of lasting partnerships, which very much mirrors my approach”.
Her arrival signals Provantage’s ongoing commitment to the Midlands market with further investment to grow the team expected over the next 12 months.
Jamie Hope added, “I am thrilled Maria has joined us. She will be a great addition to an already hugely talented team here at Provantage. It is an exciting time in our evolution, which is reflected by the fact we have been able to attract an adviser of Maria’s experience and calibre. Despite the challenging market conditions, we enter 2024 with a strong pipeline and look forward to a very active and successful year supporting our clients”.
