Philip joined Meridian in Autumn 2010 on a graduate training contract supplementing his in-house training through undertaking the AAT Diploma.  He fully qualified as an accountant in 2013.

Having worked on 45 deals over the last 7 years, Philip provides owner managed businesses with advice on the best structures and methods to achieve their aims, whether those are personal, family or company focused. 

As well as providing traditional transactional advice on M&A, MBO/MBIs, and the raising of finance, Philip also provides longer term management and board level support to achieve long term objectives linked to succession planning, wealth management and a host of other topics. 

In addition to lead advisory work Philip also manages Meridian Growth Capital LLP an early stage technology investment fund.

Personal statement

I have a BSc (Hons) in Marine Biology and Oceanography and therefore have a personal interest in scientific and technology based businesses as well as those operating in the sports and leisure sector.

In my spare time I enjoy cycling, playing rugby for Alresford RFC and trying to reduce my golf handicap.

Without Philip’s pragmatic approach to our MBO I feel the outcome would have been very different. His broad spectrum of knowledge on both the financial and legal matters enabled us to achieve a structure that was more beneficial to the management team. Furthermore, his supportive role for Diametric didn’t end on completion. Philip also took on the responsibility of restructuring the company. This was delivered in such a timely and professional manner that we continue to call upon his services today
