Ethical corporate finance boutique CapEQ has hired a Head of Project Management to enhance customer service and support future growth.
After a flurry of new assignments from business owners in the UK and Europe, Michelle Chandler-Haynes joined the team today to ensure the M&A advisor keeps its pledge to provide exceptional service for every client.
As Head of Project Management, Michelle’s role covers a wide range of key tasks across the business, from securing meetings between acquirers and sellers to supporting prospective clients considering their options.
Michelle is a highly experienced M&A professional with 10 years’ service across a wide range of sectors.
Michelle said: “After a career break to renovate my own house in Crete, I realised I missed the buzz of meeting and coaching new clients, helping prepare all the paperwork to take a business to market, and getting businesses for sale in front of key acquirers.
“I have been following CapEQ since Mark, James and Doug set the boutique up, and just love the way they are doing things differently. I’m so excited to join and can’t wait to get back into the M&A world.”
Mark Sapsford added: “Michelle is brilliant with clients and has a track record of helping get deals done, so this is real coup for us. As we enter a very busy period, having Michelle on board enables us to stay ahead with service commitments and support future growth.”
Since becoming Europe’s first accredited B-Corp corporate finance advisor a year ago, CapEQ has hired four new employees, who all enjoy a profit share, free social gatherings, charity volunteering days, and competitive salaries.
Completed client transactions this year include the sale of vape brand Liberty Flights, the acquisition of hazardous worker safety specialist EPIC, the sale of payroll software disrupter Paycircle, and the sale of social media monitoring platform Factmata.
