Deloitte appoints Natalie Morgan as Assistant Director

Deloitte has added further business development expertise to its Corporate Finance Advisory team in the Midlands with the appointment of Assistant Director Natalie Morgan.

Specialising in origination, Natalie comes from a background of business development in the legal and private equity sectors. Before joining Deloitte, she was Head of Origination at Eversheds Sutherland, and more recently PwC’s Business Development team. In her new role at Deloitte, Natalie will be responsible for sourcing new transactions and supporting on origination efforts.

Alongside Natalie, the team has also hired Raman Aujla as Assistant Manager and has taken on Rick Hallsworth as Manager, bringing the team to thirteen dedicated Lead Advisory specialists.

The new appointments come as Deloitte expands its Midlands financial advisory team after a successful 2021 with deals completed with a combined value of over £1 billion.

Natalie Morgan, Assistant Director at Deloitte’s M&A team in the Midlands, said: “I’m excited at the prospect of becoming a part of one of the region’s most highly regarded M&A teams in Midlands, here at Deloitte. The team have delivered some of the regions highest profile transactions and in my new role, I look forward to bringing its expertise to more businesses here in the Midlands.

“Having previously worked on a national remit, I’m looking forward to getting back into the Midlands market. There is so much potential here in the Midlands, with organisations that have the ability to make an impact on the global stage.”

Darren Boocock, partner at Deloitte’s M&A team in the Midlands, said: “Natalie, Raman and Rick’s appointments reflect our ambition to build on an outstanding year of dealmaking in 2021. We’ve seen great success, having delivered on high profile transactions including the sale of a majority stake in critical security services provider Orbis Protect to growth investor Synova and the sale of a minority stake in Sygnature Discovery to Five Arrows Principal Investments. We also oversaw the refinancing of Breedon Group’s debt facilities and the recent tertiary buyout of CARE Fertility by private equity backer Nordic Capital.”

“M&A activity levels remain high, across a range of sectors – most notably in key focus areas for us such as business services, healthcare and technology. We are pleased to welcome our new team members at such an exciting time for the region, as we look to reach even greater heights in 2022.”
