Promotion for Julian Ayling-Rouse, Director Grant Thornton UK LLP
Published: 09 Apr 2019
In few short but very successful months, Julian has celebrated winning the Transactions Services Team of The Year award at the recent Insider South East Dealmaker Awards, recruited a new team member and today we are delighted to announce his promotion to Director.
His team enjoyed a busy 2018, successfully advising on the completion of a number of high profile transactions including the acquisition of Moorhouse Holdings Limited by SQS Group Limited, the employee buy-out of a controlling stake of 2 Excel Aviation and the refinancing and sale of 3si to Alliance Marine Group. Julian has differentiated the firm’s offering in the market place by seamlessly integrating traditional financial due diligence and reporting accountant services with the specialist skills of the firm’s dedicated Sale and Purchase Agreement advisory, operational and commercial diligence teams. This combined offering and the resulting bandwidth has allowed Grant Thornton’s team to secure increasingly complex transaction services mandates in a climate where risk mitigation to secure funding commitment has been paramount.
“Jules is a key member of our leadership team at Gatwick. He and his colleagues provide important transactional services to our clients in the South East, enabling us to offer local knowledge to businesses wishing to acquire or sell,” said Jon Maile, Practice Leader at Grant Thornton’s Gatwick office.
