Fast growing business advisory and restructuring firm Quantuma has recruited Ian Barton as a new corporate finance partner.

He will have a national remit to work alongside Mark Lucas and the team and to lead and strengthen the firms’ relationships with private equity.

His experience includes building and leading a corporate finance advisory practice across the South East for a Big 4 firm for ten years and he has worked in the Thames Valley area for a further six years advising on acquisitions, disposals and management buy-outs.

He was named Dealmaker of the Year at the 2016 Thames Valley Deal Awards as well as leading the two deals of the year for both under £25 million and over £25 million. He was named Corporate Finance Adviser of the Year at the 2014 awards.

Quantuma managing partner Carl Jackson said: “Ian is a well known and highly respected corporate finance expert, particularly in the Thames Valley and south of England.”

Ian Barton, who will be based at the firm’s Southampton office, said: “I am excited to be joining such an ambitious and expanding advisory practice. Quantuma has a fast growing reputation and I was keen to be a part of this success story.”

Established in 2013, Quantuma now has ten offices across the south, Midlands and north of England in London, Southampton, Brighton, Marlow, Bristol, Watford, Manchester, Ringwood and Weymouth.

In the past 12 months, the London, Southampton and Bristol offices have moved to cope with expansion.

The firm, which has its roots in corporate recovery, has grown its wider advisory service portfolio which includes corporate finance and litigation support services to a growing client list.

Carl Jackson said: “Our aim is to be known as the adviser of choice for mid-market corporates and SMEs and the recruitment of Ian Barton is evidence of our commitment to this vision.”
