Grant Thornton appoints new South West director of corporate finance

Grant Thornton has appointed Paul Wood as director of Corporate Finance Advisory across the South West region.

Paul, who will be based in Bristol, was previously director of strategic debt finance for Lloyds Bank and has also worked in a similar role at RBS.

Paul has experience transacting deals for businesses - from public and private, corporate acquisitions, IPOs and mergers and acquisitions.

He said: “After over two decades working within banks, moving to Grant Thornton to explore a new challenge in advisory is a great opportunity.

"Increasingly, a wide range of businesses now outsource their advisory to people and businesses around the country which results in the service being far removed from the local market.

"I have a strong footing in the South West market and look forward to bringing local knowledge and expertise to my clients.”

Trefor Griffith, partner from Grant Thornton UK LLP, added: “We are really pleased to have Paul on board with us and are confident he will be a huge asset to the business.

"The depth of Paul’s knowledge provides him with capacity to provide our clients with additional insight and further grows our capability.

"This appointment builds upon a successful year for the Corporate Finance team in the South West and nationally and our expansion is testament to the growth we have seen in this area and the opportunities we see in the market.”
