Ryecroft Glenton Corporate Finance Bolsters Team with New Director

Ryecroft Glenton Corporate Finance (RGCF), a north-based company, has strengthened its senior team with the appointment of Jen Bassyouni as corporate finance director. Bassyouni joins RGCF from Deloitte in London, bringing almost a decade of corporate finance experience providing transactional advice and support to shareholders of privately owned businesses, corporates, and PE funds.

Why this matters: This appointment highlights the growing importance of the UK's regional corporate finance market, as firms like RGCF continue to attract top talent and compete with larger London-based firms. As the UK's economy evolves, the ability of regional firms to provide high-quality advisory services will play a critical role in driving growth and investment across the country.

Originally from Canada, Bassyouni started her career in the sector as a manager in the finance transformation division of Deloitte in Alberta. She moved to the UK with Deloitte in 2018 and has been involved in transactions in sectors such as luxury consumer goods, retail, and people, move, key, north technology, both in the UK and internationally.

Bassyouni expressed her excitement about the new opportunity, stating,"I am very excited by this new opportunity to join an agile, driven CF boutique, which has built a superb track record for the delivery of significant M&A transactions and exceptional advice for its clients. After several years of working in London, I'm really looking forward to being part of a team based in Newcastle, that advises clients nationally, and experiencing life and work in a new part of the UK."

Carl Swansbury, Partner and Head of Corporate Finance at RGCF, commented on the appointment, saying, "Attracting a CF professional of Jen's standing and experience demonstrates RGCF's burgeoning reputation in the UK M&A market. She is hugely talented and a perfect addition to our talented and driven team who thrive from providing top-flight, specialist CF advice and guidance to our clients."

This strategic hire reinforces RGCF's growing presence and reputation in the UK corporate finance market. With Bassyouni's extensive experience and expertise, the firm is well-positioned to continue delivering high-quality M&A advisory services to its clients across various sectors and geographies.
