Richard is head of our DC Advisory Manchester team, with over 25 years' Corporate Finance experience across many sectors and types of deal.

He set up the office for DC Advisory in 2008 and in 2013 was voted as the North West's Dealmaker of the Year in the prestigious Insider Awards.

Prior to joining DC Advisory, Richard worked for more than 15 years at PwC in Manchester and London, including a two-year secondment to the Takeover Panel.

Richard says: "I joined DC in 2008, drawn by the opportunity to establish an office and build a team in my home city. It's hugely important to our clients that we know the local market and have regular face-to-face contact with them."
