Recruitment Industry Dealmaker Wins Top Award

Carl Swansbury of Ryecroft Glenton Corporate Finance scooped one of the highest accolades of the night when he was named & lsquo;Young Dealmaker of the Year’ at the prestigious Insider Dealmakers Dinner in Newcastle this month.

The well-established awards ceremony, organised by Insider, attracts high numbers of entries from legal, accountancy and corporate finance professionals. The event brought together over 350 professionals at the Marriott Gosforth Park, compered by BBC Radio 4’s Paddy O’Connell.

Carl won the coveted Young Dealmaker of the Year award for his outstanding achievements since he joined Ryecroft Glenton Corporate Finance (RGCF) as lead advisor in May 2011. He is a director of this fast-growing division of Newcastle-based Ryecroft Glenton Chartered Accountants.

The North East Dealmakers Awards recognise the achievements of individuals and firms whose “skill, creativity and sheer determination have stood out over the past year.”

In its first 12 months RGCF completed a number of transactions including advising international IT consultancy firm E-Resourcing Limited on the acquisition of Williams McKinley Limited. RGCF also advised on the sale of Wild Recruitment Limited to the national consolidator, Berry Recruitment Limited and on the sale of Willsco Limited to Boardwalk Investments Limited.

Carl has also successfully helped a number of clients, including E-Resourcing, to secure the funding and bank facilities needed to fund acquisitions and the future development of their businesses. He says RGCF has many more transactions in the pipeline, which will conclude in the coming months.

Carl said: “The Young Dealmaker of the Year award has crowned a fantastic first year for us at Ryecroft Glenton Corporate Finance. It’s a real honour to have won the award against fierce competition from excellent fellow professionals.

“We’ve worked hard to make each of our transactions happen, with great results for each of our clients and the firm. We have a great team at RGCF and strong support from Ryecroft Glenton’s specialist teams. This award is testimony to the commitment of the whole team and is great news for RGCF.”

Insider’s specialist publications editor Philip Cunliffe said that seeing new names being shortlisted and winning this year was refreshing. He believes it “reflects the vibrancy of the dealmaking community in the North East.”

Chris Robson, managing partner of Ryecroft Glenton, is delighted with Carl’s success at the Dealmaker awards. He said: “Carl’s ability to convert potential transactions into completed deals with the best possible results for clients is outstanding. I’m delighted that this has been recognised by the Dealmaker awards in one of its top categories. His exceptional approach has produced great results for our firm and for each of the clients we have advised.”
