BDO appoints new private equity adviser from Livingbridge

A partner from private equity firm Livingbridge has joined accountancy and business advisory firm BDO as its new Head of Growth Advisory.

Paul Morris joins BDO’s corporate finance team following 14 years at Livingbridge and having held previous positions at Barclays.
 
In this newly created role, Morris will be advising ambitious UK businesses on growth opportunities with private equity investment. His experience in guiding mid-sized businesses through every stage of the private equity life cycle spans multiple sectors, in particular services and technology and media. 
 
Paul Eagland, managing partner at BDO, says: “The UK economy is proving resilient to ongoing uncertainty, but companies need more support in unlocking finances to fund future growth. Private equity investment is an attractive option for ambitious, fast-growth businesses looking to expand and our experience in this market is second to none.
 
“Paul’s appointment directly from the private equity world will be an invaluable addition to our expanding M&A team as we continue to help our clients seek and challenge the best opportunities for growth now and in a post-Brexit economy.”
