BHP Corporate Finance boosts Transaction Services team with senior appointment

BHP Corporate Finance has strengthened its due diligence offering further with the appointment of Charlotte Ellerby as Assistant Director.

Charlotte joins BHP Corporate Finance from EY’s Transaction Services team in Leeds, where she gained seven years’ transactional experience after joining them as a graduate. Throughout this time Charlotte worked on a wide range of transactions providing due diligence and advice to both corporate and private equity clients, covering a variety of sectors. She also spent time working internationally, spending 5 months on secondment to EY Copenhagen.

Charlotte’s appointment is the next step in BHP’s continued development of its specialist due diligence offering, following the appointment of Martin Athey (Transaction Services Partner) in August 2019. The firm has now accelerated its recruitment plans after a successful period working on numerous deals for a variety of clients, including corporate acquirers and funders.

Charlotte Ellerby, said: “As an open-minded independent firm with a strong presence in the local market, the offering at BHP really attracted me to taking the next step in my career. I look forward to working with Martin to develop the Transaction Services strategy and the future of the department, where we will provide high-quality, opinion led advice to our clients and contacts.”

Martin Athey, Transaction Services Partner at BHP, commented: “We are continuing to build the due diligence offering at BHP, bringing strength in depth and experience as well as flexibility and adaptability. Having expanded quicker than expected in the last six months we are thrilled to have taken on Charlotte.

“Attracting someone with Charlotte’s experience and background is testament to the culture of the firm, its client base and our reputation in the market.”
