Bristol advisory firm Shaw & Co. has strengthened its senior team with the appointment of new corporate finance director, Anthony Brown.

The 35-year-old has been advising on corporate finance and strategic business planning for the past 14 years and has held senior positions at Charlton Baker, Blomfields and Harpersheldon.

“It’s a very exciting time to join the team.

“As part of my role, I’ll be strengthening the firm’s business development and extending its reach into Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Somerset and the M4 corridor, as well as advising clients on a range of strategic business and corporate finance issues.”
