Bamburgh Capital, the independent corporate finance adviser to ambitious companies and entrepreneurs, has invested in its team on the back of a record 2023.

The firm has boosted its team in recent months with three new hires in Manchester, Krystel Eastman, Alex Wilson and John Thornhill, while Rakib Islam has joined the Newcastle office.

All new recruits have joined as Associates, apart from Alex Wilson, who has joined as an Associate Director.

Alex Wilson has over 14 years’ diverse experience across corporate finance, restructuring and finance. Prior to joining Bamburgh, Alex spent five years working for two acquisitive private equity backed businesses, operating in the retail and financial services sectors.

Alex Wilson said: “It’s great to have joined such a dynamic and ambitious firm and I am very excited to embark on the next stage of my career with Bamburgh Capital. The culture is collaborative and entrepreneurial and I’m looking forward to helping the team continue to deliver excellent results for our clients.”

Co-founder and Director Michael Parkinson said: “We have a clear goal of being the leading trusted adviser to UK SMEs and this can only be delivered by working with a great team and investing in them as they develop their skills.

“Against a backdrop of challenging market conditions during 2023, we have had a profitable year and delivered some exceptional and innovative outcomes for our clients. We are looking to build on this in 2024.”
