Edward has more than 15 years of mergers and acquisitions experience counseling shareholders of successful business services companies on sale options and managing sale processes.
The blending of technology with traditional people-based businesses is a defining characteristic of how the business services market has changed over the last five years. Edward’s expertise in articulating how technology has helped businesses to scale and act as a competitive advantage, together with Lincoln’s global buyer access, has resulted in outstanding successes in the sale of these hybrid business models. His clients include corporate vendors, entrepreneurs and financial sponsors whose businesses serve both public and private sector customer bases in the U.K. and internationally.
Edward joined Lincoln from Cavendish Corporate Finance where he worked on 20 mid-market, sell-side transactions, predominantly for private vendors. Prior to Cavendish, Edward trained as a Chartered Accountant at Deloitte and its predecessor, Arthur Andersen.
