New Corporate Finance Partner for Sheffield based Accountants Hart Shaw


Patrick Abel,
Corporate Finance Partner at Hart Shaw

Hart Shaw Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers has appointed Patrick Abel as Corporate Finance Partner at the Sheffield based firm.

Patrick began his career in the steel industry before working in private equity. He has 20 years Corporate Finance experience, 11 of those as a Partner with a national firm based in the city.

Hart Shaw’s Corporate Finance department offers a complete range of strategic services to local businesses and recent months have seen an upturn in the number of transactions taking place, prompting the decision to expand the department.

Patrick comments “This is a great opportunity for me to join such a highly thought of and proactive firm as Hart Shaw and lead their Corporate Finance offering.  Our focus will be based around offering a complete range of support services to our clients in order to assist them to realise their strategic and corporate goals.

“One of the main reasons why I have joined Hart Shaw is because of their ability to deliver such a broad range of services to their clients. They ensure their clients receive the best possible advice which is complemented by the value added services available from the Corporate Finance department.

“Hart Shaw’s full service offering is equivalent to that of national firms, but unlike those firms is agile enough to respond to local market conditions and offer excellent value to its clients.  This is an exciting time to be joining Hart Shaw with the genuine prospect of several years of anticipated economic growth ahead.”

Paul Dawson, Senior Partner at Hart Shaw comments: “Recent months has seen a positive upturn in the Corporate Finance market in South Yorkshire, which has resulted in an increase in requirements from our clients who are taking big steps to grow and safeguard the future of their businesses.

“Patrick is a well-known and respected individual and has a wealth of experience in this field which is vital to help realise the long term strategy we have at Hart Shaw. He will be able to hit the ground running with a number of clients we are currently working with in addition to increasing our profile and offering in the years to come.

“We wish Patrick every success in his career at Hart Shaw and are excited to start working with him.”

Patrick will officially join Hart Shaw on 1st November 2014.
